ISimpleFileService/ISimpleFileManager - any replacement?

Had toyed a bit with ISimpleFileService/ISimpleFileManager, but as of RTC 2.0 M3, they are gone. They were still there in RTC 2.0 Beta1.

Wondering if the why behind their removal can be shared.

Also, is there any recommended replacement for an alternative that is about as lightweight as that was (for hiding a file in the repo for access by client or server code).

Thanks.

"Simple files" were originally provided as a way of creating files that
could be referenced from process templates and project areas. The
implementation was problematic, however, because of their global scope.
They were replaced by the item type "IProcessAttachment", which allows
you to attach a file to any process template, project area, or team area.
