If you see 2008r2, 2012 and even 2016 and 2019 acted as AD DC but I think
you saw it, it is (NetBios) still at a place here, despite on AD DC mode.

As far as I know there are many small/medium LANs where NetBios features
such as neighborhood, folders, printers sharing using NetBios names
resolving and others are still used.

In my opinion It would be better to offer to admins/users alternative - who
wants they uses v2 and not uses NetBios, who wants they return to v1 and
uses NetBios that they could make a decision on their own
And this will be fully identical functioning as Windows DCs behaviour.
As for compatibility also.
