There are a number of man pages that have changed names. And there are a
lot of configuration files that have changed paths at that version change.
If somebody is using an old version, they need the man page for the old
version, and any comment about deprecation will only be confusing to
individuals who have difficulty understanding why their on-system man page
states something different than what the on-line man page states or why
they don't have a particular man page on their system when there is one
on-line. A deprecation message will make perfect sense to people who are
affected by the deprecation - but for those who insist on using old
versions who apparently do not value version differences anyway, the
deprecation message will be misleading and confusing.
