Deprecate .bind("ready") event
|Reported by:||dmethvin||Owned by:||dmethvin|
The "ready" event is error prone because users may attach an event handler after it has fired. It is much more natural for ready semantics to follow the Promise model; if handlers are added after the document is ready then they will fire. We're adding a ready Promise in 1.8 (see #11470) and of course the standard $(fn) or $().ready(fn) continue to work without change.
Let's deprecate the ready event as of 1.8; there is no hurry to remove it, but let's help users avoid dumb errors caused by dumb APIs.
