I am also interested in knowing why these are still around in XHTML 2.
I can understand why they were passed onto XHTML 1, but now is the
first real chance to remove old stuff as XHTML 2 doesn't have to be
backward compatible.

I will be using XHTML 2 as the base for a document standard in a
specific field and the extensibility makes it easy to add my
domain-specific markup (or use RDF with SKOS to express what I need).
So I see no reason why XHTML 2 should conatin domain-specific markup
at all.

code and blockcode are also candidates for removal in my opinion.

Peter
