Why "class exceptions" are not deprecated?

"The first argument to raise names the exception to be raised. The
optional second argument specifies the exception's argument.
Alternatively, the above could be written as raise
NameError('HiThere'). Either form works fine, but there seems to be a
growing stylistic preference for the latter."

Are there any deprecation plans?
