[Zope-CMF] [dev] GenericSetup: import step version

Can we please deprecate the 'version' argument of registerStep?
This is the interface description:
o 'version' is a string for comparing versions, it is preferred to
be a yyyy/mm/dd-ii formatted string (date plus two-digit
ordinal). when comparing two version strings, the version with
the lower sort order is considered the older version.
- Newer versions of a step supplant older ones.
- Attempting to register an older one after a newer one results
in a KeyError.
AFAICT this feature was never used, became inoperable after adding
extension profiles and makes absolutely no sense in a global step
registry. Originally steps were linked to specific files in the profile,
the 'version' described the version of the XML files.
A profile version can now be set in metadata.xml. AFAICS this supersedes
the import step version approach.
Am I missing something?
