There is some leaning in the usefor group to keep
Supersedes as it is, but let it deprecate with time, and
invent a new header "Replaces". This new header might have
a parameter with values such as "minor", "major" and "faq".

The reason for this is that many existing news server
cannot handle even the simplest change in the syntax for

Since e-mail does not have any standard yet for this
header, this might mean that such a header should be named
"Replaces" and not "Supersedes" in e-mail. We  will have to
wait for the conclusions in usefor before this is decided.
