There is currently no way to specify that a parameter was
obsoleted in the OCF standard. A few times, IIRC, some parameters
were deprecated in the meta-data just like you quoted above. Even
in case a parameter disappears from the meta-data, the existing
configurations are going to continue to work, though the crm
shell will certainly complain when verifying such configuration.
