I published this brief article and updated our old Business Group
reports (early draft specs of WebIDL approach) with a deprecation
notice pointing to them. I have done the same with those specs' status
section in Github and the have requested the old vehicle data spec
published under /TR to be published as a note.


Processing pending, should be completed soon, likely tomorrow.


We have had some recent confusion where another organization had
stumbled onto our discontinued work. I have reviewed our various pages
as well to ensure pointers are directly people to current work.
