No, that would be pretty useless since Plaintext is the default 
SourceType and it's virtually never specified explicitly. There are 
still Plaintext modules, but that's not relevant to the question I asked.

I'm not proposing dropping support for Plaintext modules, just querying 
whether anyone uses the PLAINHTML and PLAINFootnotes filters and would 
mind their removal.

Are there any modules for which these filters would function correctly? 
I don't know, but it seems doubtful. We don't even offer a 
PLAINFootnotes option filter option in SWMgr, nor is PLAINHTML exposed 
the way that other render filters are.
