The future of the 'uncategorized' category

Is there any plan for removing the 'Uncategorized' category, or at least removing its requirement? Some users want the ability to only show the_category() when the post is part of a real category. Also, with the introduction of custom taxonomies in 2.9, not all hierarchical taxonomies will have a default term, so this flexibility needs to be introduced anyway.
I'm curious why the default category was introduced in the first place? Was it solely for permalink handling?
If attachment:ticket:10122:hierarchical_metaboxes-2.patch is accepted (specifically handling hierarchical taxonomies as int) the following just needs to be added above the checkbox list to allow deselecting of all terms from the taxonomy:
<input type="hidden" name="tax_input[<?php echo $taxonomy?>]" value="" />
