I don't really agree, what improvement will deprecation bring?
Surely the std.xml module is not perfect, but will deprecation 
really help std?

I believe that removing it will only leave the std without xml, I 
don't like the idea of ​​moving too many things out of the std.

I would be happy if std.xml were replaced with a new module, I 
propose this plan:
1) Create a new module for xml and put it in std.experimental.xml
2) Wait for user feedback
3) Deprecate std.xml and informing users that it will be replaced 
with std.experimental.xml
4) Replace std.xml with std.experimental.xml and put the old 
module on undeaD
