That just says it's deprecated.  And says "it
is best...".  It doesn't say _why_ it is best.
It doesn't say why it was deprecated.  It
doesn't say how DEF suffices as a replacement.

Supplying DEF is _not_ an adequate substitute
for INITIAL-INPUT.  Each is useful.

(BTW, when comparing two things, the better
word to use is "better", not "best".)
