No, it should still work just fine.  I have certainly not seen any
notice anywhere that xmodmap has been obsoleted, and it seems to work
fine for me.

As far as I know there are no significant changes to keyboard
configuration between XFree86 and Xorg.

Note that that document was originally written for Xfree86, so it is
not something specific to Xorg.
