Is there any way you could revive Guest Sessions in a future LTS distro? Guest sessions are good security - they give me just enough power to do what I need to do on a daily basis without risking my system. In short, Guest sessions save me from myself. I had upgraded from 16.04 to 18.04, gotten a problem I couldn't fix and was all to happy to wipe and rebuild my hard drive and return to 16.04. I can't be the only one who feels this way.

You seem to believe we can get this back into a distribution but we are just users (except for a couple of people that are also employees of Canonical).
And if you want it back: install LightDM.
sudo apt install lightdm sudo gedit /usr/share/lightdm/lightdm.conf.d/50-disable-guest.conf
allow-guest needs to be set to
true. Reboot the computer and pick lightdm at the login screen.
Before you start using it: Guest Account is NOT secure: the data from normal users on the system is not secure from the guest. The same goes for the data from the guest. And the guest can view system files.
