Ok, so I will tell you what /I/ want, and I will spell it out loud:

    NO REMOVAL OR DEPRECATION (NOT EVEN "SILENTLY") 
    OF ANY FEATURE CURRENTLY EXISTING IN RDF!

Isn't that a very simple rule?

And I believe it matches quite well the first few mails in this thread which
sounded to me as if many people "do not want to fix what isn't actually
broken".

Michael
