Actually, Gez originally wanted to deprecate noscript. But as earlier comments
in the thread indicate, the concept of "deprecation" isn't currently supported
in HTML5. So Gez changed the title to obsolete but conforming, which is about
the closest thing we have to deprecation in HTML5. 

Gez will pop in and say what he wants, but he didn't claim that noscript is
obsolete. I suggest reading the original comment to the bug to discern his
original intent.
