If it's just something Walter's said to somebody in personal
communication, IMO it needs to be taken with at least a pinch of salt.

Not without an indication of what its replacement is going to be.

It's worse than that. The only way to know is to either happen to read this
particular message in the newsgroups or be in the pattern of reading every
message in detail.
Besides, the scope keyword is three things:
(a) a storage class
(b) a class attribute
(c) a means of doing scope guards
So when you say "The scope keyword is to be deprecated", you really just mean
"meaning (a) of scope is to be deprecated".
