Oh, that's a good idea. I was concerned that if everyone keeps implementing broken functions for compatibility then things will never improve. Having a group called LEGACY or DEPRECATED would be a good step forwards. Another possible step is to announce that LEGACY functions will eventually be removed from the spec. How does that sound? Maybe also provide, when possible, a mechanism to convert each LEGACY function into an acceptable one (this will not always be possible). I'd like to think of something to slowly get implementors away from legacy functions.
