It was undeprecated in Oct 2011 with commit 2f1384b:

    date: reinstate the --iso-8601 (-I) option

    We deprecated and undocumented the --iso-8601 (-I) option mostly
    because date could not parse that particular format.  Now that
    it can, it's time to restore the documentation.
    * src/date.c (usage): Document it.
    * doc/coreutils.texi (Options for date): Reinstate documentation.
