Please don't.  If you really want to fix the warning then either use
with-no-warnings, or just remove the whole feature.
But don't just remove the call to make-obsolete-variable.

The "obsolete" thingy mostly means "slated for removal", AFAIC.  So,
yes, it is "obsolete" because I plan to remove it altogether.

I see no such evidence.

Yes, simply out of fear that someone somewhere might use it.  Hence the
`make-obsolete-variable' so aso to warn people that if they use it, they
should come and see us because the feature may disappear.
