Blizzard_CombatText removed?

I'm kinda out of the loop, what happened to Blizzard_CombatText?

It's like Blizzard is going to remove it, but what are they going to put in place of it?

I can make it show a custom message, but nothing more than that
Is it because of the related cvars that got removed or something else?
/run SHOW_COMBAT_TEXT = "1"; UIParentLoadAddOn("Blizzard_CombatText") -- load it manually

/run CombatText_AddMessage("hello world", COMBAT_TEXT_SCROLL_FUNCTION, 1, 1, 1) -- test
/run CombatText_OnEvent(CombatText, "COMBAT_TEXT_UPDATE", "DAMAGE", 123) -- fake an event

/dump CombatText:IsEventRegistered("COMBAT_TEXT_UPDATE") --> true, but nothing shows up when hit

* I don't mean the Combat Text on enemies in the 3D world, although that also got revamped.

Where did that person find out about those new cvars like "floatingCombatTextCombatDamage" btw?
They are nowhere documented yet and I couldn't find it in the FrameXML either.
