Comment title: Awkward deprecation requirements

This checkpoint basically demands that if some feature has been deprecated, possibly because no one can agree on its proper definition, then it must be properly defined and its interactions fully characterized.  It is likely that some things will be deprecated precisely because they cannot be well and unambiguously characterized; this checkpoint ensures that as long as these features are part of the main spec, it can conform at priority two, but as soon as the features are deprecated, it cannot.

Proposed resolution :
