Such a removal would make the WebCore code more readable because the #if ENABLE(CLIENT_BASED_GEOLOCATION) preprocessor directives would go away, more understandable because there would be less code, and more maintainable because we would only need to fix bugs in one code path, rather than two.

The iOS port also uses the non-client-based design.

I would file a bug for each port to start with.
