Those facilities were added for v5 which was well into it's development by that time.

v5 exists in beta form but was never completed

It was cancelled many years ago and will probably never be released now.

It's always been there. Sorry, perhaps I should have edited it out in the latest edition (converted from TXT file to PDF now).

Well, yes, but, there isn't any 757 out there for P3D (I'm talking like a pretty good one). Meanwhile ATC currently has PF3 and ProATCX which are very good and many people are using with many benefits, if RC want to get 5 on going it is going to be a huge challenge for a stand still project.
Just from my POV.
