In response to overwhelming feedback on this issue (especially in blogs,
forums, and mailing lists other than this one, like www-html and
public-html) I've removed the predefined classes. They're opaque again.

The main use cases for predefined classes can mostly be dealt with using
some of the new elements. class=note and class=example, for instance, can
instead use <aside> elements, class=copyright can use <small>, etc.
