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