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.

Greetings !
