Can we see where this is going on the dev roadmap? When will threshold go away?

Maybe a Dev can answer this, but as far as I know there aren't any plans to remove it yet. 

How can we keep it? Can we get event_filter and such allowed within the rule itself if threshold is going away?

And why'd we change anyway?

The new event_filter allows rate_filter. This allows rate based attack detection and auto blocking.
