assert_valid is deprecated in unit tests but not in functional tests

Reported by Kostas K. | September 7th, 2009 @ 03:39 PM says that assert_valid is deprecated but it is still usable in functional tests (as of 2.3.3) which makes no sense.
Is it going to be removed or kept?

    To "deprecate" means to schedule a piece of functionality for removal in a future version and issue a warning when its used to make people aware that they will not be able to use it sooner or later.

    assert_valid does not exist in ActiveSupport::TestCase but it's scheduled to be removed from ActionController::TestCase. This ticket can be marked as invalid.

    David's right, they'll still be available but should be raising deprecation warnings.
