Calling them "deprecated" is not strong enough for me.
They were "obsolete" as of May 31, and I *strongly urge* that
they stay that way until HTML 2.1, when they should
be eliminated altogether.

Better, eliminate them right now. They've been deprecated, then
obsoleted, now it's time for them to vanish.
