I am +1 on removing documentation on old stuff, even where they are
retained. One problem here is the DTD generation task; it needs to be smart
enough to look at the deprecated tag and not include deprecated attributes.
Because @deprecated does actually set a bit in the class file, this is
nominally feasible.
