Yeah, right, I'm a little slow :-)

I admit, I haven't look into this particular case, but I think it is
desirable to somehow mark these "deprecated" tags (I can't figure out a
better word). OK, saying "deprecated" right away might be a little
harsh, but there should be some note pointing to a new tag and
suggesting that it would be probably a good idea to use that one.
