That seems even more confusing to me. 'Not used' describes a user behaviour (wrongly, since the users may, in fact, still be using the feature); this is an application or support change.

How about 'Not supported'? That seems to me to incorporate the appropriate hint of 'If you go ahead and use this anyway, on your own head be it' :)
