It was listed once, I think both in the Amazon / Anker site description and also the imagery (I think) but it looks like it has been removed in the mean time. Maybe Apple patches / firmware in the interim have resolved the compatibility issue, as it was I believe, to do with flow reversal where the Mac was trying to charge rather than be charged.
On the Pro's I've used with it on I can't say I've ever used it beyond speed scrolling through a video clip. I think the main bulk of hate comes from the extra premium you have to pay to get a 15" Pro just because of the touchbar (which most will not use beyond the escape and F1-12 keys). As for phase out, I wouldn't think anytime soon as Apple are not known from walking away from a self created standard, even if it's poorly received (a la homepod). Probably got another two refreshes before they replace with another 'brave idea'
