The test suite does not claim to define MathML conformance, the spec
does.  Therefore it is OK that it includes deprecated markup. It does
not mean that a conformant processor must support all the tests that
include it. The tests you list can be viewed as error cases that an 
implementation must detect (like our XML Schema raises an error when
it tries to validate them).

Besides, one could try to run the test suite on a MathML 1.x processor
where those tests should not return an error.

Cheers,

Max.
