I'd more or less agree about code and blockcode, with the caveat that
that prevents the use of pure XHTML to document the XHTML language.
That may well be a strong enough reason for keeping them.

samp, kbd and var are relevant for nearly any instruction document
for a man machine interface, including a web site's HCI, so I would
consider them a requirement for most web sites and a large number
of consumer documents on web sites.
