In general I agree, but from time to time as the language grows I'd be
willing to accept some deprecated tokens on a case-by-case basis if a
better solution becomes available.
Have you noticed the effective default value for the paintCompression
global property was changed some time ago?
To the best of my knowledge this has affected only one person, and it
was just a one-liner to restore the old behavior. While I'm generally
against token changes in principle, I must agree that the new setting
makes more sense for more people.
