USB-A is really still a thing for people? Isn't it cheaper in the long run to replace whatever old USB-A device you have with a newer better USB-C one than to keep buying these huge hideous dongles/hubs?
I can probably count the number of USB-C thumb/flash drives on the market on one hand. External portable USB drives that come with a USB-C cable? Same. Scanner? Printer? ZERO come with a USB-C cable. Show me a 3rd party wireless keyboard/mouse set where the receiver is USB-C. There is a myriad of devices that come with only USB-A cables. So it is really still a thing? I would say most definitely.

My sister still has a piece of equipment she needs for her business that uses a serial port, for which she needs a USB adapter.

So yeah, there will be USB-A to USB-C use cases for the foreseeable future.

For your everyday drive, yes; but for other equipment is not that easy. I have a Data Acquisition System (DAQ) I use for research that costs around $10K and connects via USB A. I could find workarounds but iPad’s portability plus what I already have is better than re-wiring the whole thing.

Ooo. You're post is popular! :)
Out of 40 years of personal electronic stuff I JUST bought something that uses USB-C. A Samsung 500GB SSD drive...but thankfully it came with a USB-C to USB-A cable. :)
We have easily over $400,000 worth of function generators, precision multimeters, precision power supplies/analyzers, oscilloscopes, etc. out in the lab. I think one has a mini-USB connector. Just about all of them have GPIB if that helps. :)

You have obviously not been reading comments sections for the last couple of years. Lots of people are vehement that they still have legacy devices that need USB-A. It may be more of a convenience thing at this point with trying to reduce the number of adaptors. Having it built into this hub might simplify that.
