I'd be a bit worried too, if I were actually a big shot. ;-)
You're right, they aren't deprecated. I actually believe (though I wasn't involved in this) that the decision not to deprecate them was fraught with a fair bit of contention. The compromise to the camp that favored deprecation was the following wording in the HTML 4.0 spec:
"The following HTML elements specify font information. Although they are not all deprecated, their use is discouraged in favor of style sheets."
