We don't use all the functionality NoScript provides, has anyone
evaluated how much time it will take for reimplementing the
features directly into tor-browser? In particular, if we're already
thinking about burying the NoScript settings so it is out-of-sight

blocked or click-to-play instead?

On mobile, NoScript is debatably even less usable than on desktop, so 
I'd like to hide it (or drop it completely), if possible.

I didn't see an obvious ticket with details on this. A quick search
found a couple requests for this, but I didn't see a technical discussion:
