The board never said we needed to or should *remove* them, they just
said usage was "discouraged."  Since the time of that note, we have
not added any, to my knowledge, in Commons.   The problem is what to
do with those that pre-date the change in ASF "policy."   Seems the
right thing to do is to ask people if they are OK having their tags
removed.  That is a PITA because many are long gone.  So many have
remained in the older component sources.
