Ok, makes sense. My reasoning behind the element was that we can wrap
blocks of content in one go - especially useful where the content happens
to be table rows and cells. It would then be trivial to produce
documentation without deprecated content, for example.

How would you see us handling the example:

    <td>Gets a given attribute of a session.</td>

I guess if we marked it with <tr deprecated-see=""> that would do?

Just taken a look at Forrest DTDs, and I can't see any deprecated element
or attribute ... the closest is "warning". So I guess we'd need to add it
to both cocoon and forrest ...
