For the Lenya community it would be very helpful if the number
of options was reduced (and I think this is also true for others).
I'm not a "real" Cocoon committer, but very +1 for marking
outdated components as deprecated.

This sounds very useful. There are some non-IDE users in
our community who aren't that much aware of deprecation.
Could it be switched on/off globally?
