[CentOS-virt] Why is SCSI disabled in kvm on CentOS 5.8?

Looking at the SRPM kvm-83-249.el5.centos.5, and the SRPM for
qemu-kvm- on CentOS 6.2, I see many
patches to remove SCSI support.  The 5.2 kvm.spec file disables
scsi in the configure run.

Why has this been disabled?  Many old OS's don't grok SATA, but
have had SCSI support for years.

It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless
minority keen to set brush fires in people's minds. -- Samuel Adams
