Where is the code referring to a deprecated declaration?

The compiler behaves as described in the spec.

What is the requested enhancement? Please, write one up. There isn't one
anywhere in this report.

No, but I find it a good metric for finding behavior that is bug prone or
confusing, and might be worth considering an enhancement request for.

I would have done that if it made sense to do so.
The compiler works as described in the spec within the case in this report.
Walter has clarified that this is intentional, and therefore not a bug. If you
think the spec and the design of D are not what they should be, that is by
definition an enhancement. So please, write one up.
