There are all kinds of reasons why somebody steps down as an 
author/editor. I'm also one of those affected (see 
http://www.w3.org/TR/charmod-norm/). But crossing these people out as in 
the proposed stylesheet, or marking them as <del>, doesn't feel right at 
all and kind of looks ridiculous. <del> works well for changes in 
versions that show differences, but not for final versions.
