By historic I assume you mean references to 2.x modules, classes, functions, etc which are no longer present. One thing I would suggest is that the more recent versionadded strings be kept. At the very least, if something is going to be new in 2.6, keep that. Maybe also keep the 2.5 versionadded references. Older references can probably be deleted.
