We left out CENTER intentionally since it is deprecated. However, I
notice
that DIR and MENU are in the TOC and they are deprecated as well...

Anyway, the idea was to "hide" the deprecated elements from the reader
as much as possible at the beginning of the document, but make them
available
from the indexes.
