ISSUE-40: Deprecate the "Post" activity

Deprecate the "Post" activity

Activity Streams 2.0
Raised by:
James Snell
Opened on:
AS1 used the "Post" activity as the default. It's a bit strange as defined. It means things like "John posted the picture" or "John created a note", etc. There are a few natural ambiguities to it. We have "Create" and "Add" as more specific alternatives that should be preferred. We cannot dump "Post" entirely because it's used in existing AS1 implementations, but we ought to deprecate it's use.
