Hello www-qa,

The specification requires "Identify deprecated features." Even in
version 1 of a specification? (Yes, it can happen that version 1
formalizes industry practice, so defines and immediately deprecates

Conversely, is it required to state explicitly "there are no deprecated
features" to meet this requirement? Otherwise, its hard to distinguish
between a pass (there are no deprecated features listed) and a fail
(deprecated features are there, but were not identified as such).

We suggest that a bullet "It has no deprecated features" be added to the
bulleted list under "Conformance criteria".
