Well I definitely don't need that. It looks like I will end up writing a script to delete or overwrite the attribute for now.

I am syncing from an AD domain one way (onewaysync: fromWindows), and using the Password Sync service on the domain controllers. Perhaps the Password Sync service requires the attribute? 

No.  You only need it if you sync passwords _to_ AD - AD requires the clear text password.

Even if so, it would be nice if the plain text attribute were to go away once the password hash was stored.

Is there a way to prevent the unhashed#user#password attribute from being stored or used at all? I don't need it to be replicated anywhere--I presume that the hashed password will be enough to authenticate users.

Unless you need to use Windows Sync, yes.  If you plan to use Windows Sync you'll have to replicate the unhashed#user#password to the server that has the windows sync agreement.
