not quite. we removed the API permanently in queens. it was actually 
deprecated back in 2016[1] officially. we've unofficially/transparently 
been telling people to switch to Gnocchi (or whatever target you want to 
put into publisher) for longer than that as the legacy api/storage 
hasn't been touched meaningfully since 2015.

given the realities of the project and OpenStack, our project was just 
more proactive in culling stale and/or unusable code.

as it stands, ceilometer solely generates/normalises data about 
openstack resources and publishes data to consumers. other services are 
required to leverage and add value to the data.
