Removal of JPEG 2000 support means that most general (non-professional) users will be unable to view/read JP2s with (one of) the leading image editor(s) aimed at this audience. The fact that Adobe doesn't deem continued support worthwhile may also undermine confidence in the format's long-term viability. On a side note, in a 2007 blog entry Adobe's John Nack already questioned continuing Photoshop's JPEG 2000 support.
