Was there any discussion of declaring it obsolete?

IMO, the recommended style for making keybindings should be `kbd', which
is available in Emacs, XEmacs, and SXEmacs.

So your 2 definitions would become:

  (global-set-key (kbd "<C-kp-divide>") 'My-Command)
  (global-set-key (kbd "C-x c")         'My-Other-Command)

That's quite easy to read and write (you can simply insert the string
describe-key outputs as argument to `kbd'), and it hides how an
implementation represents the key sequences internally.
