Unless I'm mistaken, it has disappeared off of Canon bodies...?

I don't think I ever used it when I had my T2i. Seemed to be very much like P mode. And on a crop camera that most people will be using with slow aperture kit lenses there isn't much shallow dof to control. Everything looks the same unless you are really close to your subject. Plus creative auto lets you control the background blur and is easier to use.

I'm glad they got rid of it. It doesn't really help newbies understand the relationship between aperture and dof IMO. 
Move along nothing to see here!
