Sure. Its not like they're really going away anytime soon, regardless of
what the spec says.
And I can see the point of having a convenient list in the spec, so long
as its not a recommendation.

I don't know exactly how you'd arrange it, but I'd even say "deprecate
and explictly state they're optional on resource constrained devices". 

However, I admit I don't know what the CSS practise is for small
devices... are they supposed to just pick and choose modules to support,
or is it acceptable for a module to define features small devices don't
need to support?
