[0.17.29] Beacon tech still requires Blurple circuits tech ?

(Effect Transmission still requires Advanced Electronics 2.)

https://factorio.com/blog/post/fff-275
Production science pack alone now unlocks:
  • Effect transmission - using Productivity modules with the help of Speed modules in Beacons - the recipe for moar production.
In 0.16 Beacon research needed High-Tech (aka "Gold") Science, which itself needed Blurple Circuits - now that requirement is gone.
Beacons themselves don't need Blurple circuits.

Shouldn't the Advanced Electronics 2 requirement be removed ?

+1. It is deprecated dependency.
