Much as I would rather keep ctrl-alt-backspace, I'm struggling to think 
of a situation whereby when I press it, and X does nothing, I'm stuck 
for something else to try.

It's being deprived of a quick way of doing something, not *any* means 
of doing it.

If we were discussing the deprecation of cp or grep, I'd understand this 
a little more. As it is, it's just another thing to add to my Ubuntu 
post-install script (unless it's made an install-time option, which 
would make me almost as happy as just keeping it).
