No. There is a bug here - perhaps two.

Either (a) the message produced, itself, is incorrect/misleading (I don't have 
the message in hand), because it tells you to simply "replace" the one by the 
other, or (b) the doc string of `make-obsolete' is wrong, because it says that:

"The warning will say that CURRENT-NAME should be used instead."

It is not a simple case of using CURRENT-NAME instead of the obsolete name.  
This doc string says in effect that this obsolescence operation is simply a 
renaming (use this name instead of that name), but it is not.

Extremely misleading at the very least.  And outright incorrect, by any 
reasonable reading.
