Speaking for myself, you are attributing motives to me that I do not have.

Fine, now I understand the situation, so I don't need to bring it up
again. For you to be involved in Emacs, the MS-DOS port should stay
around, and how much usage it gets is not a factor. I think it's a
bargain price for your labour! :)

I still don't see what the big deal is with trying to establish how many
people are using Emacs on these less common platforms. Note that I did
not say "and then let's remove the ones that aren't used much". I just
think it would be interesting data to have, and the release of a new
major version seems like a good time to take stock.

For example, I have no idea why "Ultrix" (last release 1995?) gets a
mention on the Emacs homepage.
