Mozilla 2:Obsolete APIs
See Gecko:Obsolete API, for APIs that are already considered obsolete. We should aspire to remove these from Mozilla 2.
A lightweight Request For Comments protocol seems appropriate given the wide audience of Mozilla platform developers. We need to reach out to hackers whose work is hosted at AMO, mozdev.org, and other such sites. We should try to reach the XUL Dark Matter bodies out there on the galactic rim. The goal should be to propose and discuss with plenty of time for two-way communication leading to consensus on which APIs go away, what their replacements are, and what new APIs are needed that we haven't already planned.
Comments and contributions welcome.
