Is there a hidden field deprecation feature for Managed packages?


As an ISV we dream of deprecated fields for quite a while. While skimming through a custom objects meta.xml i just stumbled over a deprecated = false in a field definition

    <description>My Field</description>

When I manually set this to true my Force IDE reports an error:

Deprecation not supported in this organization

Does this mean I could have an org with this feature enabled?!

Possible Suggestion/Solution #1

This is indeed a tease, and gives the impression it can be enabled. Sadly it is for future use as far as I am currently aware and cannot be enabled.
