>Then don't advocate to invalidate legacy software.

It is not your position to tell anyone else what to advocate, and not your 
position to demand that anyone else "fixes" stuff.

We the committee have deleted stuff before, it's not even unusual.  Fortran 
77 and Fortran 95 both deleted features, and yet were quite popular and 
successful standards.

Not only is the impact of deprecating DPROD being grossly over-exaggerated 
here, the effort that would be involved in "fixing" it is trivial.
