It's a very niche Feat if Unarmed normally progresses with Simple weapons, but not actually useless given the existence of Wizards, Cloistered Clerics, and potentially other Classes who lack Simple Weapon Proficiency rising to Expert (or above).
So...not actually useless or in need of change even given the currently unofficial errata.
They did specifically state that. And the phrasing they used for the general rule wasn't that Unarmed proficiency would match your proficiency with all Simple Weapons. It was more like "basically your Unarmed proficiency should match your Simple Weapons." While Wizards don't get proficiency with all Simple Weapons, all of the weapons they are proficient with are Simple Weapons. The reasonable conclusion is that their Unarmed proficiency becomes expert at 11th level with their other weapons. I included that assumption in my Guide to Proficiency Bonuses (Google Drive version).
So right now the only classes that benefit from the feat are Fighter (so the claws, bite, or tail will keep up with their Chosen Weapon Group) and Cleric (so they will keep up with their Favored Weapon). Note that neither Warpriests nor Cloistered Clerics get better than Trained in Unarmed Strikes unless it is their Favored Weapon. We might see future classes or Class Archetypes that can also benefit.
