The current version of the spec states that /events "is deprecated and will be removed from a future release". Should we then even bother implementing it?
Yes, because it's also used for the room previews API. I mentioned to the Matrix team that it was odd that one section of the spec says it's deprecated without replacement, but another part of the spec still uses it and doesn't offer any alternative. They're aware of it, but I'm not sure what their plans are.
As far as I'm aware, https://matrix.org/docs/spec/client_server/r0.2.0.html#id74 still describes the latest state: "This API will also be deprecated at some point, but its replacement is not yet known."
I raised matrix-org/matrix-doc#756 to track the inconsistency.
