I would say: 

1) the encouragement to move away from transitional is worded in more
   or less the same way as the definition of deprecated - in my view,
   transitional was created already deprecated (but note again the 
   concept below that you cannot deprecate something that never was in
   the standard);

2) nearly all the differences between transitional and strict are the
   deletion of deprecated features (some exceptions are requiring explicit
   top level block level elements (an addition, not deletion) and frames
   (politics, or that they didn't exist in previous standards).
