+1! I'd even suggest to add back avalon compatible sitemap components for those 
few which were moved to spring 100%. Deprecate them, document in the migration 
procedure, and completely remove them in 2.3.

Obviously, they do lots of harm. And less users understand about them, harder it 
is to migrate for them.

It is. C2.2 is already more than year late. And if somebody have not noticed - 
many of its parts are carrying "RC" moniker, which means *absolutely no changes 
to signatures of public interfaces and classes*. There are alphas (and 
milestones) for changes to interfaces, and betas (and milestones) for changes to 
public classes.
