Adding those deprecated but still functional packages to the KGS would
be one way, but seems to be a bit of work.

What about just adding a simple extra text file next to the
generate_externals script which includes the paths to the deprecated
packages. It's quite unlikely that any of them will see a new release
anymore and thus need any adjustments.

All that would happen is that the paths found in the extra file were
added to the externals. On the 2.11 branch of Zope it would contain the
deprecated packages in questions, whereas it would be empty on Zope trunk.
