Oh. I claim ignorance. I blindly assumed the implementation in -NG
was just as trivial as in plain old Automake. When there are technical
reasons to drop INCLUDES in Automake-NG, it's a totally different
situation. I then agree that it's perfectly ok to issue a (default
visible) deprecation warning in Automake, in order to enable an easy
upgrade path to -NG in the future.

I should have known that the removal wasn't as trivially stupid as
it looked at first sight...
