This was my way of reasoning here:

1) I would like to make a massive cleanup in the arch/mips/mips-boards
   for the reasons explained here:

http://www.linux-mips.org/archives/linux-mips/2008-01/msg00136.html

2) Removing Atlas would reduce the clean-up effort.

3) According to Ralf, the user base for Atlas is zero, the board itself
   is buggy.

4) History knows of an attempt to remove Atlas:

http://www.linux-mips.org/archives/linux-mips/2007-06/msg00153.html

5) Nobody is losing, man-hours are saved. No explanation of why not to do that.
   Hence, the patch to the feature-removal-schedule.txt.

It would be nice if you could take a look at that (please see the "P.S." part):
