It was really an internal implementation detail of the federation plugin 
that "escaped".

We removed it because we had no idea people would find it useful.

Can I ask what you were doing with it? It would not be impossible to 
bring it back, but I am genuinely curious as to why anyone would need it.

Cheers, Simon
