           Summary: Why is <big> element removed, but not the <small>
                    element? I think big and small are companions, they
                    are a couple, they're married. Either they should both
                    stay, or they should both go! It is unfair that one
                    has to stay, but the other has to go. I think

Why is <big> element removed, but not the <small> element?

I think big and small are companions, they are a couple, they're married.
Either they should both stay, or they should both go!
It is unfair that one has to stay, but the other has to go.

I think they are for styling not for semantics, so I think both of them should
get deleted, then people should use CSS instead.
