I think your suggested deprecation policy is reasonable. But, what put  
me off with zope.org was that all the deprecated documentation comes  
up in search results. I hated zope.org for that, we would risk having  
the same situation. Granted, your policy at least promises that the  
documents work, but will they risk "spamming" search results?
