I am not the maintainer of MPL, although I have been granted rights to
change it. I don't think MPL has a primary maintainer any more so any
large change needs a consensus AFAICS.

The consensus appeared to be that MPL should keep the old code. I agreed
with you instead. But I am not going to go against the consensus of
others unless there is an updated general consensus that agrees that MPL
need no longer support the old compilers that it does.
