	Honestly, I don't believe we need to deprecated these macros. We
already introduced the implicit rtl::OUString constructors which (no
doubt) can break source-code corner cases, and (as I say) - if people
want to produce 'generic' extensions that run across multiple offices,
they need to build with an old sal/ etc.

	So - IMNSHO getting too upset about source-compatibility for corner
cases in the ure is not nearly so important as ABI compatibility which
is much more so.
