Thanks, I overlooked that.

I think `customize-option' and `customize-saved' should still show
them, indeed.

Excluding the above, is `customize-apropos' otherwise an exhaustive list
of the commands where they would still be visible?

I never use `customize-apropos', so what do you think makes sense for
that command?  Should it still show it?

Perhaps, yes.  I could just mention in its docstring that it's obsolete
instead, since I can't find any facilities to mark a defface obsolete.
Or maybe someone will enlighten me and tell me how it's done...

Good point.  I'll take a look at what happens with `customize-option' in
particular, where we would want to mention that information.
