Long time lurker, potential HLL developer eventually.  I believe the 
idea is that giving it in a structured format is that it would allow an 
HLL to do some build-time/static analysis on their code base to find out 
if they're using any of the deprecated API.  It could even be used by 
NQP or the like to warn about it when building also.
