Actually, why not keeping it maintained without the "Sync Feature"? Is it something most users make use of? I use pretty much Firefox for everything, but I need to keep Chromium given some corporate web pages that only work on Chrome/Chromium. So I believe it's good for Arch to keep Chromium, and not sure about the rationale on no supporting Chromium without Sync. I bet it's pretty useful without it. I've been keeping an eye on that thread, but in the end devs are the ones deciding.
