Do you have concrete examples of where this has been an issue? Modules
are only added roughly every 18 months and only on the 3.x line as of
the middle of 2010 when 2.7.0 was released. Nothing should have left
the 2.x line within that time as well, and I don't recall anything
having completed a deprecation cycle on the 3.x side.
