Cancelled Pokéwalker-like feature in Diamond and Pearl?

Apparently, Game Freak planned a pedometer function for Diamond and Pearl as there is an unused entry on the main menu for it. Maybe the Pokéwalker was supposed to be implemented earlier :P This reminds me of how Amity Square was a way of testing the following Pokémon feature for HeartGold and SoulSilver.

Here is the full list of main menu entries:

Additionally, Black and White as well as Black 2 and White 2 have an unused setting for the Options screen that was supposed to work as a toggle for wireless connections but oddly it is only found in the Japanese versions. It is called (character mode set to kanji) or (character mode set to kana) and has the description:

常で信 (つでつ)
ON/OFF選べま (/べま)

I wonder if there is leftover code for any of this.
