While looking for references to XEP-0078 (jabber:iq:auth) in other XEPs,
I was reminded that the 2008 compliance suites (specifically XEP-0212)
recommend support for it. Perhaps it's strange that a current compliance
suite would recommend support for a deprecated technology, but it's
probably even stranger to recommend support for an obsolete technology.

I don't think this warrants a delay in obsoleting XEP-0078 (e.g., we
*could* wait until January 1, 2009), but I wanted to bring it to the
Council's attention.
