I feel cheated.
I believe that all features mentioned will indeed continue to be available for SQL Server 2014, but removed in an unspecified future version.
As someone mentioned earlier, deprecated does not mean that you cannot use a feature. It simply means that it would be unwise to use it, at least when it is possible that the database might be installed for use in a future version of SQL Server when the feature has been removed.
Moderation of submitted questions seems to be non-existent.
You never know: reading my book: "All about your computer" might just tell you something you never knew!
