The patch that deprecates it mentions problems with Eq and Ord.
I suspect the implementation is inconsistent with the axioms.
Also, a list of tags independent of version numbers isn't exactly what
would be needed to differentiate between two versions on Hackage, you
actually need an "upstream" and a "Hackage" version number, plus maybe
more version numbers if a piece of code goes through more stations.
I.e. that wouldn't solve the problem, it needs to be replaced with
