Thanks, but I don't understand what is the practical meaning of such
an entry: it doesn't really reflect any real change in Emacs.  The
deprecation doesn't have any expression in the code; using the code
you want to deprecate will not generate any warnings to the effect
that these features are deprecated.

What I suggest instead is to actually remove those parts from the
master branch and mention the removal in NEWS on that branch.
