[TYPO3-core] Changing behavior of the TEXT cObject

Hi all,

Christopher (from the Doc Team) has proposed to clean up the TEXT 
cObject to make it behave like other cObjects. His patch [1] would throw 
a deprecation warning when root-level properties of the TEXT object are 
used, except "stdWrap". This makes behavior of all cObjects consistent.

In the patch review, Benni objected that the HTML object was deprecated 
because of its behavior and now we would make the TEXT object behave 
like the old HTML object.

Personally I think that making the TEXT object consistent with other 
cObjects is a good idea. The HTML object was deprecated not because of 
its behavior but because it was redundant.

I think it's a nice clean up to introduce in the next LTS, but I would 
like to have more opinions on the topic.
