Has nolock been depricated in SQL Server 2012, or does the optimizer ignore the no lock and still run?

I don't know that it has been deprecated but you should avoid using it anyway. Unless you want unpredictable results due to missing and/or duplicate data which can generate impossible to reproduce bugs I would not use it. Isolation levels are a better choice since they eliminate lots of the bizarre behavior with the NOLOCK hint.

nolock is always ignored for insert/update delete statements, as honoring that request could potentially violate the ACID principals ;

You can still use it for SELECT statements in SQL2012 (even though it can result in bad data, see the post above)

I guess, it's applicable if you do INSERT ... SELECT ... FROM table when NOLOCK is used for "from" table.
I can hardly see how you can update the table/row which will not be locked...
