It's not obsolete in practice. It's the value used by the current HTML spec:

See the part that reads, "The MIME type used to refer to JavaScript in this
specification is text/javascript, since that is the most commonly used
type, despite it being an officially obsoleted type according to RFC 4329."

That wouldn't be very helpful real-world guidance, since "text/javascript"
is still what's far more commonly used in practice.
