If XEP-0124 were Experimental and not Draft, I would agree with you.  But Draft raises a significant bar on breaking backwards compatibility.  Removing these, while correct from an architectural purity perspective, would make existing implementations (of which there are many) non-conformant and therefore non-interoperable, with (at least in my opinion) little real benefit.

In other words, I think the boat for that level of change has already sailed into the West beyond the realm of Men.
