I agree with you as a general principle.

Too bad that the entire cocoon build system relies on the gump 
descriptor for its blocks and this is going to be so for a while.

If you deprecate href, cocoon will be seriously damaged.

Now, I am the one to blame for this, but my rationale was to keep gump 
and cocoon in synch by making sure that everytime you built cocoon, you 
were also testing if the gump descriptor was right.

Of course, only gump can do the full check, but the cocoon build can 
help a little bit.
