Unfortunately I think you are right. :(  But ATSFontGetFileSpecification
() is not deprecated, so you can use that.  Then convert the FSSpec it
gives you into something else, like an FSRef.  I filed a bug with Apple
to make an FSRef version of that function.

They will only deprecated it if/when they replace it.
