Could you give an example how to deliver with a positive flavor a report
about deprecation messages talking about the wrong function, telling you
in vague terms to use something instead for which no documentation is
available, with both the state of documentation and message apparently
being the same for years?

I mean, reporting to the authorities even something as unsavory as a bug
has a sinister flavor to it after all.  It has found a home and place it
has been enjoying for years in peace and company.
