You may want to add similar deprecation warnings to the following specs linked from https://www.w3.org/auto/:

Vehicle Information API
Draft Business Group Report 18 August 2014
https://rawgit.com/w3c/automotive-bg/master/snapshots/vehicle_spec_snapshot_latest.html

Vehicle Data
Draft Business Group Report 18 August 2014
https://rawgit.com/w3c/automotive-bg/master/snapshots/data_spec_snapshot_latest.html

And perhaps link to the latest WG deliverables instead on that landing page.

Thanks,
