Yep... Good point.. But IMHO we need to follow the same deprecating
convention which we follow for the interfaces... At least for the 1.2
we might need to keep this... We can DOC this and also we can mention
that this will be gone in the next release (post 1.2)..

Users might want to override the default formatters.. But I found the
above use case of removing the soap formatters to be very rare :)..
