Sure, though it's Historical/Active so a little different. I'm not actually
sure it's something we should discourage, mind.

If an Active (or Final) XEP is considered to be discouraged, then we should
move it to Deprecated (or wherever Final XEPs go to die). The Compliance
Suite would, hopefully, reflect that, rather than be the canonical source.

Sure, we do. But nobody can implement MIX right now, so it's a waste of
time trying to put it into a Compliance Suite as anything more than a
mention that we're expecting it to be in the next revision, perhaps.
