I don't see it as admitting or otherwise, the Samba NT4 domain code
remains a fully supported and functional part of Samba.  

We don't however control the clients however, so we give this warning.

To me, deprecated refers to code we plan to remove from Samba in the
short or medium term, and that is not the case here.  

I also think using that word will just make it more complex for the
organisations undertaking the transition to Samba AD.
