Am I right? If so, what's the point in still having PI0 around then? Do I miss something?

The only reason is I still didn't take the time to remove pi0. It was a "hack of the moment" to have the constant pi before there were constants implemented in newRPL. It's not a constant but a command, and cannot be used in symbolics. But I couldn't debug angle conversions and angle objects without having a convenient pi to do some hand calculation checks.
So no, there's no point and it will be removed at some point.
