It is still allowed. I do think there are different rules for where you put them. We re-did our building 10 years ago now, and when they did it, they put all of our gas jets in chemistry in hoods - none on the bench. But physics has 1 or 2 on the bench.
Hood ones are not advisable in my mind. Not that you can?t have them in hoods, but I would encourage you to try to get some out on the bench. The air flow in a hood is just too much for most things you would want to use a burner for in chemistry. We often find that we run hoses out of the hood onto a bench top for typical burner use.
