(I'm not sure if removing code that already has one foot in the grave counts
as adding features, but I understand what you mean from the standpoint of
stabilizing the code.)

In fact I must have missed the feature freeze call or I wouldn't have
suggested this so eagerly.  But I can think of two safe alternatives:

  1) Delay the release of 21.0 for another couple of weeks.

  2) Delay removing dead features until Emacs 22.

Option #2 may be years away, but it's still an acceptable alternative.  I
just wanted to point out that now is the best time for the foreseeable
future to consider removing old features.
