The resource tracker has not been deprecated. Only the extensible 
resource tracker code has been deprecated in Mitaka. The extensible 
resource tracker code allowed a deployer to override and extend the set 
of resources that were tracked by the resource tracker. It was 
determined this functionality was leading the scheduler and resource 
tracker code to a place where it was not possible to have consistency in 
how resources were tracked and thus it was deprecated and removed.
