Deferred simply means that someone didn't update it, or didn't ask the
XMPP Council for a Last Call. It doesn't mean the spec is not recommended.

Even if a XEP is Draft or Final, it won't necessarily be implemented in
any given client.

Feel free to contact the authors of XEP-0142 about possible simplifications.

That may depend on what kind of component you develop (e.g., some server
codebases may give you access to that kind of information via internal
plugins/modules). Right now, XEP-0114 doesn't enable you to do that via
an external component, but we are slowly working on a new component
protocol that will be more flexible.
