A few of the deprecations I have disliked for a long time:

from Products.CMFCore import CMFCorePermissions
Why should I bother about deprecations in foreign packages
(Archetypes in the case above)?

Why should the short "format_stx" no longer be supported and
instead the monster "StructuredText.StructuredText.HTML" be used?
And here is my favorite:
> /home/dieter/Z/Products/HaufePortalBase/__init__.py:86: DeprecationWarning:

> CMF1.6: HaufePortalBase
The "product_name" parameter used to be mandatory -- thus all
calls to "ToolInit" had to use it.
Then, a means was found to derive it automatically
from the context. The developper was so happy that he wanted all
others immediately drop the parameter -- result: several dozens of deprecation
warnings for each start -- in trivial cases, where the automatically
derived information was identical to the explicitly provided....
I called out "what a stupidity"....
