Why bother people with removing them from the wiki text? They're often much
easier to write for the casual editor. Just compare

<s>#A striken out vote. ~~~~</s>

to

<span style="text-decoration: strike-through;">#A striken out vote. ~~~~</s>

Or <center> is a very easy way to center a text, <u> is helpful to underline
text and the like. We shouldn't force users to learn HTML and CSS for their
regular editing. They should remain supportable in the wiki text and the
software should convert them to proper HTML 5. 

The real concern here should be to move the deprecated HTML elements and
attributes outta the software generated text. I've recently requested to
replace some <font> attributes in some messages at Translatewiki, and Siebrand
then did it, but I'm pretty sure there's more such stuff. I can look for the
MediaWiki messages with old CSS, if you want to. There may be some in core, and
probably much more in the extensions.
