In addition to the discussion about state deprecations, I'd like to give
another kick to the apple cart - keeping/removing some of the text range
constants. I put the letter/word/line/sentence stuff in in the first
place, thinking it'd be useful for several AT use cases and trusting
that the Java parsing support for those chunks would do the right thing.
Alas, as Harald points out supporting this generally (especially
sentence) is a right pain. And I have a feeling that screen readers
aren't using this API. So, while we are in a deprecating mood, perhaps
we should deprecate this too?

I agree to this, I'd love to see Sentence go. It's not only a nightmare to
implement, it can also lead to obscure bugs with languages that don't have a
concept of "sentence".
