Once the users of this are removed, then we should remove it so nobody starts using it. We want to avoid it because it slows down the shutdown of content processes in release builds.
We shouldn't forget to document in the idl and jsm why we're doing this. Otherwise, people will just re-add it.

That sounds reasonable. It shouldn't be a long-term risk, because there is work underway to make the other user of content-child-shutdown, telemetry, not use it, whereupon it can be removed entirely.
