The docs cannot be removed when something becomes deprecated, only
when it is removed.  Deprecated features still need to be documented
since someone will need to modify code to not use the deprecated
feature.  This requires understanding the deprecated material as well
as whatever is used to supplant it.

It also serves as a place to provide a link to the replacement
