You are right. I wrote this when almost nobody knew what WML was but WAP
was starting to appear. Today is common knowledge for anybody that
worked with it.

Anyway, it's back incompatible. So I'd suggest having *both*, deprecate
it and remove it on Cocoon 2.1 or later.

What do you guys think? anyway, is this really necessary?
