T10 doesn’t use ‘deprecated’ but for these the committee felt that something like that was needed and started the process many years ago. I didn’t look to see how many years back but I know it was quite a few.
The following statement is an example from the MODE SELECT 6 command description:
“Implementations should migrate from the MODE SELECT(6) command to the MODE SELECT(10) command.”
A corresponding statement is in MODE SENSE 6.

Subject: [T10] Deprecation phase?
I see Gerry Houlder starting a discussion about making 6-byte MODE SENSE and MODE SELECT obsolete.
Does T10 (or ANSI) have any policy about having a Deprecation phase?
In other words do features move from "Supported" directly to "Obsolete" in one move or is there a defined "Deprecation" state where the feature remains but is disapproved for a period of time (e.g., one year) to give users a warning that they should avoid the feature because it will soon become obsolete?
