I don't have a problem with removal of the *html filters (the code 
itself) provided that the *htmlhref filters produce actual 
HTML--preferably XHTML. We probably will want to maintain API 
compatibility by moving the *htmlhref filters on top of the *html 
filters, then subclass *htmlhref from *html, and deprecate the *htmlhref 
filters altogether for removal when we hit 1.8.0.
