The attribute is always "unknown class". It no longer conveys
information, so I want to get rid of it. I don't want to break
applications that parse Nmap XML, though (I checked and Zenmap will need
a small patch). So this is a warning that I plan to remove the
attribute, and a request for anyone to correct me if I'm off base in
removing it.

Good plan.  I agree that killing it sounds like the way to go.  Be
sure to remove it from docs/nmap.dtd too.
