It wasn't exactly removed. The entire tool was replaced with a
frontend for xrandr because X (as you've noticed) has changed
significantly on the backend.  Nobody has gotten around to adding that
functionality to the GUI for xrandr. Are you volunteering to write a
tool that lets you add modes through a GUI?  If not, this'd be a
feature request on GNOME Control Center.  This list is not a bug
