Just to put things in perspective, this isn't specifically about Angry
Birds, since that's just one example of all the content out there, large
and small.

But yes, we can certainly work on making these names non-normative while
still maintaining backward compatibility in Chrome.  I have never been
against different ways of handling this in the spec.  I started out
mentioning these old APIs as "recommended", meaning they were not
normative, and the section was simply there in an appendix to show how the
API has changed, an informational section which seems very useful for
developers to know about.
