How about this Proposal:

Replace "Use of the MgmtData element is deprecated."

  with

"Support of the MgmtData element in implementations is optional. The  
element SHOULD NOT be used.
Interoperable use of MgmtData is not defined - interoperable  
alternatives are described in the next section. "
