Is AF_UNIX really deprecated?

IEEE Std 1003.1g-2000 and later POSIX standards [1] do not include
AF_LOCAL and mention only AF_UNIX, but according to socket(2) man page it
mentions AF_UNIX is deprecated, use AF_LOCAL instead.

I'd like to add support -f local to netstat(1), I'm wondering if AF_UNIX
is really deprecated.
