The technical reason would be "It's dead Jim! Don't bother implementing this"

But if people pick up the yang model and it has all these obsolete
entries, those people in turn will start some basic implementation /
support of these. So I understand yang is not the group that should
make this decision, hence my thought of quickly adding a column to the
registry to obsolete/deprecate so that yang can skip these.

But then people think the yang model is incomplete?
