I can't see this feature returning either as more cars come equipped with HD Radio. On an HD Radio data stream, the bits are buffered. Thus, negating 'picket fencing' and moderate multipath effects.
Whereas, Diversity Tuning was designed to get around these effects. Optimum spacing between the two antennae helped as one antenna would be in a "peak" and the other in a "null". Thus the switching in the radio for best reception.
I'm an ancient radio hack from a long time ago, so I remember these things... :-)
