We can't deprecate the use.  To me deprecation means we are eventually
going to remove the feature.  However, we can't remove it, because
people lobbied for a long time to get it in.

Maybe we could document using dist-hook to remove files from the dist
directory.  Could you write a patch against automake.texi?
