I agree that's theoretically how it should go, but we've had enough examples of undocumented/buggy behaviour where the fix was worse than the bug (to the point where we brought back an undocumented C field that was deprecated in 3.0 because removing it in 3.8 broke too many people). 

A couple of versions with a warning on will reduce the surprise. People are (slowly) learning that DeprecationWarnings matter, so I don't think it'll be wasted effort.
