FWIW, I approve of this move.  I thought it was still possible to salvage
a usable smartmatch operator by something close to what we tried in
5.27.7, but it is telling that there has been no similar effort in the
intervening five years.  With no such fix in sight, it is right that
smartmatch be declared a failure and be removed.
