I think the objection to "deprecated" is that it implies that support will be
removed in a future version.  Practically speaking, we can't drop support for
any feature once it's widely used on the web, so this is misleading.  In the
terminology that HTML5 currently uses, you could ask that noscript be
non-conforming, or be conforming but raise a validator warning.  "Obsolete but
conforming" is a subset of the latter, and isn't necessarily what you want (is
it really obsolete, or we just think it's a bad idea?).
