I'm ok with either.
The obsoleteness is what I tried to find out earlier. Right now GEGL 
doesn't support the old HSV/HSL modes. Is it supposed to?

A reminder of Martin's suggestions:

I'd consider legacy/obsolete/old defendable. 'old' is nice for its 
shortness, 'legacy' doesn't sound as negative.
The old modes aren't broken (just different and maybe less useful) and 
'compat.' is, well, somehow ugly.

But I'll let you guys bang each others' heads over that. ;)
