No, it's not. 'Deprecated' generally means that the developers aren't
maintaining it anymore, and that packages requiring it should migrate to
something else. It doesn't at all imply that nothing still uses it, only
that doing so should be considered a bug.

That said, we're a long way into the process of removing those
dependencies. I don't know how close KDE is to dropping it, but as I
said before, you can build a current Xorg and Gnome without it and
without any loss of functionality.
