One potential compromise- tag in a section in pms about "nonstandard 
eapis" and throw in some links to places folks can look.  That general 
approach should provide a way to retire standardized EAPIs from the 
doc also- same thing "go look here".

Aside from that, the 'first' bit is inaccurate- prefix actually was 
first (almost since their inception they relied on it).

Either way, +1 for punting it.  Someone earlier labeled it as a "latex 
obfuscator"- that pretty much nails my views/reasoning for wanting it 
gone.

Tt's a bit like c source, ones annoyance grows proportional to the 
invasiveness of ifdefs.
