I think you're exactly using as an argument for keeping it the
argument I'd use for trowing it, with a difference in formulation:
everybody think they understand what it's for.  Especially they
sometimes complain when it's rendered as endnotes, just because they
expect it to be "notes at the foot of my page", which is exactly a
layout decision, and we're usually trying to stop users to think about
the layout, when they write their document...
