Sorry for joining the discussion late, but if that's what you're wanting
to convey then I think "deprecate" is too strong a word:

1. To express disapproval of; deplore.
2. To belittle; depreciate.

Perhaps "end-of-life" or something similar would be a better term? When
I hear "deprecate", I think it means you're saying there's a serious
problem with it and it shouldn't be used.
