+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #261544 +++

In the AC call on May 14, it was brought up that the single most important
point about API deprecation is whether we require all release train projects to
allow for 2 years lead time minimum before actually removing deprecated API.
http://wiki.eclipse.org/Architecture_Council/Meetings/May_14_2009#New_Topics

I'm splitting out this discussion into a separate bug because it is a separate
aspect of the API deprecation discussion: "Indicate that it is not just idle
talk but will have consequences".

Please file your comments, thoughts, arguments and concerns here.

See bug 261544 comment 0 for an overview on issues related to deprecation.
