2015 Whiskey Off-Road XC
Better question: How many racers on the podium got paid to ride the big-wheeled bikes they raced (and, not coincidentally, the only wheel size the respective manufacturers make these raced bikes with)? ..."don't you hate it when someone asks a question that they already know the answer too (sic)?" A not-unrelated point: how many racers on the podium would have finished in the same place with different size wheels? Answer: 90% likelihood, all of them.

It's their general poor performance and lack of precision that makes people want to get rid of them. There's practically nothing "reliable" about ANY front derailleur's performance or precision. Things had gotten much better over the past few years with the latest versions of 2x front derailleurs, for sure, but consistency has always been a problem.
