Main reason: often you get buried in deprecation warnings which then drown out
potentially more important warnings.

When migrating: yes, such deprecation warnings are handy.  But in 99% of the
cases you'll just be *using* the various libraries and you still get a load of

Complaints/questions about the huge list of deprecation warnings in earlier
plone versions were a regular occurrence on the mailinglists.

So: yes, there's a reason.  Perhaps not the best one, but still.
