Remove the Nova v3 XML API

Registered by Sean Dague on 2014-01-23

There is very little justification to have 2 data formats in an API, especially given the extra costs it adds to the code base, the downstream documentation, and validation costs. We should remove XML and just work to make the JSON API the best that it can be. We need to do this before the icehouse release so that we don't ship a non experimental version with XML support.
