Yes, this a good point. Obsolete generally means that it has been removed from
the code cannot be used but the that doesn't appear to be the case
here. Deprecated (at least in the programming world/US) means that it can
still be used but it will become obsolete shortly.

Perhaps the directory emacs/lisp/obsolete should be renamed
emacs/lisp/deprecated, make-obsolete-variable -> make-deprecated-variable etc
