If you mean lib-comment.php that would actually be CMT_deleteComment, 
right? I'm guessing you mean not to confuse it with lib-common.php 
functions. I'm all for this. I think you could also justify HTML-related 
stuff like COM_startHeader, COM_startBlock, etc. In fact, it might be a 
good exercise to review the code in lib-common.php and determinte what 
categories of functions you can come up with and decide how to layout 
the libraries.

Only issue with this sort of stuff is it will clearly break 
compatiblity. I say you would leave the stubbed out functions in 
lib-common.php, call the new library equivalent (i.e. COM_deleteComment 
would call CMT_deleteComment) and then log a warning to error.log that 
the function is deprecated and will be removed in a future version.

Thinking out loud,
