There’s no way to do this without bad XEP 191 user experience. You can either confuse the XEP 191 user by saying a contact is blocked when they aren’t completely blocked or say they aren’t blocked when they are partially blocked. Either way is bad. We can debate for a long time which is worse, but they are both bad. I favor leaving it to the implementor to determine which is worse.

I have don’t see why we’d deprecate something that’s in use simply because it doesn’t work well with something else in use.
