Quick question, I hope.

Is XMLRPC required for any core forum or plugin functionality? e.g; for subscriptions, notifications, feeds, template tags, etc.?

After the recent recurrence of another exploit in the WordPress pingback function being used for DDOS attacks, I have activated a plugin to Remove XMLRPC Pingback Pings across our network.

Everything still seems to be working fine, but I'm trying to determine if anything in particular may be affected.

Thanks in advance for any feedback!
