[Michael Quinion] "Bated here is a contraction of abated through loss of the unstressed first vowel (a process called aphesis); it means “reduced, lessened, lowered in force”. So bated breath refers to a state in which you almost stop breathing as a result of some strong emotion, such as terror or awe.."

Herb,

The falconry term seems to mean the opposite of abate - ie. frantic:
To flap the wings wildly or frantically.
(of hawks) to jump violently from a perch or the falconer's fist, often hanging from the leash while struggling to escape

Breathless amid mere anarchy, indeed.

And since we're discussing words (or software, as the case may be) fossilized before they gaed:
