Please do so and report on the results. One solution might be to ship those headers outside of libc++ for projects that still need them.

Those headers contain data structures like __gnu_cxx::hash_map that have replacements like std::unordered_map. I would like to remove those headers. I've put up a patch for review but I won't commit it until we have a sort of plan because I know some people have expressed feelings about removing the headers in the past: https://reviews.llvm.org/D57688 <https://reviews.llvm.org/D57688>.
