Well downgrading to “discouraged” entails no further action so it is

And since deprecations historically had no teeth I think we should not
just remove things that have been historically/ambiguously deprecated,
but announce a deadline for them first, so it’s clear that their status
is now no longer ambiguous.

Then for all historical deprecations that do not get slated for removal,
downgrading vs leaving ambiguous has identical effect, except one choice
creates clarity and the other doesn’t.
