Hello to all,

ISO 10241 "International terminology standards" has a scale of
acceptability ratings comprised of: "preferred", "admitted",
"deprecated", "obsolete" and "superseded".

Well, I always read "deprecated" as outdated, obsolete, superseded,
archaic, "was once approved, but should not used furthermore".

In contrast, I see cases where someone would like to express a status
"disapproved" as "We know it might be intuitive to raise such a
concept and we've discussed it, but for good reason we declined it and
won't discuss it again." (e.g. when a designation is not best practice
in a certain context).
