I agree to purge it, as described in ACE-424 [1].

First question is *do* we semantically version the release itself? I think we should as I
see no reason to use a different versioning scheme.

If so, I would be surprised if we don’t end up calling this 2.0.0 as I just broke an API
in a backward incompatible way because I feel it was wrong (an interface extending ManagedService
for no good reason).
