Yeah commercial pressure vs doing the right thing :) i.e. they were backported to 2.x.x because they were needed for something, but one letter expansions are dumb (and unescaped?) and will be removed in 3.0.0 (some already have been). I think were going to replace the time ones with a strftime expansion using one of the platform independent libraries that are floating around.
