I guess you have some point.   You must like Tcl :-)
No required elements will be dropped in any VuXML 1.x, but if/when
there is a VuXML 2.0 there will likely be some changes to be made in
applications (duh).

Yeah, stuff like `i386'.  I don't see it (or <category>) as useful
for the FreeBSD Project today, either: these are for use by other
projects.  In the case of <architecture>, I'm not yet sure that it
will make it through pre-1.2.  I'm still working with the project to
understand their needs.
