No, it would be very surprising if that feature disappeared. We are
well past UI & Feature Freeze.

I don't think it's appropriate for the Manual to state this feature is
controversial or speculate that it may be removed in future releases.
The first part is commentary which is more suitable for a blog post or
a popular review. As far as I'm aware, the fact that some people don't
like the feature (most of whom haven't even used the feature yet, many
don't even use Unity) doesn't really matter for whether it will be
included or not. Unity is still default in Ubuntu despite the
criticism it has received.
