I have the theory that nobody actually uses the capture feature and I'd
like to get rid of it. People who do use it, should better switch to the
counter driver.

TBH I only found two drivers using it, including this one.

$ grep -rinI "\.capture" drivers/pwm/ | wc -l

While I agree that there is not much drivers using capture feature, I have mixed feelings about removing it.

I wonder if this is the opportunity to drop st,capture-num-chan. There
is no mainline user.

If there is no opposition about removing this feature I suggest to do it in a second time, in a serie.
