Isn't it an internal callback and no deprecation notice required to
change it?

"to align with" is a bit weak justification that so huge change is
required (really many sources must be fixed). I guess it could be
required for shared RxQ. If so, it should be mentioned.

Agree, let's drop this deprecation notice. Thanks for pointing this out.
