Good point Martin. I have added a description
to the bug taken from the porting guide about the state of the presentation
API. In short this API is not implemented in 4.2. Invoking it or extending
it will simply have no effect.

Re: [eclipse-pmc] Marking some Platform
API for future deletion
The bug is missing a discussion
/ rationale for deleting “org.eclipse.ui.presentations”
I know that this has been
discussed at length in other forums, but as we’re voting on the deletion
in bulk we should also have a concise description and rationale for what
we’re voting on. Can you point us to something ?
I’m OK for all the other
deletions as per your reference, these have been deprecated for a while
and the rationale makes sense.

Subject: [eclipse-pmc] Marking some Platform API for future deletion
I am proposing that we mark some Platform
API for future deletion according to our deletion policy . These are
all APIs that are no longer functional in Platform 4.2, so documenting
them as marked for future deletion is the clearest possible signal that
clients should immediately stop using them. The complete list is in this
bug report: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=370248#c3
We can discuss at tomorrow's PMC call. For PMC members that can't make
the call, please vote on this mailing list, since API deletion requires
consensus of all PMC members.
