I am not convinced about that. It will typically mean that in order to delete 
a sub-menu, you will need to create a .directory file for that sub-menu while 
at the moment it is a matter of adding a line to the menu file. This change 
will not have any meaningful impact in the near future anyway because even 
though they are deprecated, implementations will still need to process the 
<Deleted/>/<NotDeleted/> tags correctly.
