Good ... it's moving in the right direction.  Note that that particular 
occurrence of "used" (proposed new sentence in verbiage of GL7) is the one 
that I commented on recently.  However, looking again at LC-33, it is 
actually about "4. Definitions", where deprecated currently says:

"deprecated -- An existing feature that has become outdated by a newer 
construct or is no longer viable. Deprecated features should not be used"

Suggestion.  To resolve LC-33, change "should not be used" to "should be 
avoided" there in "4. Definitions" also.  (And look around through the 
checkpoints of GL7 to see if there are any other vague occurrences of "used".)
