It might be construed as bad attitude but I don't really understand why
there is so much concern about such a small change that will only impact
thosee who use GDB from Emacs.

A while ago (three years actually) I submitted a patch to remove far more
markup than I am adding:

but there was no interest.  

It started from a dialogue with Andrew Cagney to relieve some of the pressure
to remove the remaining annotations but only drew a response from Bob Rossi.  I
think we concluded that the breakpoints-invalid and frames-invalid annotations
could go.  So I'll offer now to submit another patch just to remove those
twoannotations (which fired far too often, anyway).  This should more than make
up for the two I've just added.
