There isn't really a way to have a proper deprecation process with imports. 
The best that you can do is give a notice somewhere that they're going to be 
made private in the future and then later make them private. deprecate can't 
get involved at all AFAIK.

Personally, I'd argue that as long as the fact that the imports are public 
isn't mentioned in the documentation, we might as well just make them private
