That's a good point. Often we deprecate things because we had a misspelling or 
failed to take our own naming convention into account. So maybe what we need 
is a two-level warning system: one for bad things that you really should be 
doing differently and one for cosmetic things.

Definition of cosmetic: a typedef or a function that will be inline in 6.0.
