As I recall, the term "deprecated" has been in use for decades in the software-standards business. Here is some research.

And here is slightly more, a definition of 'deprecated' from RFC 1213 in 1991:
http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc1213#section-3.1

3.1. Deprecated Objects

In order to better prepare implementors for future changes in the
MIB, a new term "deprecated" may be used when describing an object.
A deprecated object in the MIB is one which must be supported, but
one which will most likely be removed from the next version of the
MIB (e.g., MIB-III).

MIB-II marks one object as being deprecated:

atTable

As a result of deprecating the atTable object, the entire Address
Translation group is deprecated.

Note that no functionality is lost with the deprecation of these
objects: new objects providing equivalent or superior functionality
are defined in MIB-II.
