Once it has been decided that a tag has to go, whatever new functionality is replacing it is put in place and the program is modified to give notice on load that the old tag is now deprecated. To give users who create their own data some time, that is left in place through one stable release. Even though it tosses out warnings, the tag(s) in question will still work.
In the following stable release the tag(s) functionality will be removed from the program and they will no longer function (and you should get warnings on load of this fact).
