IIRC there was such a discussion on the core list and people there did 
not want to introduce such an option. At last, the goal is not to annoy 
people with insipid log entries but to make admin awares that they use 
old extensions that should be patched/upgraded/replaced ASAP.

The problem is that as you pointed out, the log file becomes huge very 
quickly as Dan reported that most if not all entries come from core 
itself. I think this is where the problem is: introducing this 
deprecation feature without taking care of quickly enough making the 
core compatible with it.

This deprecation log makes sense and should not be removed or at least 
not by default. But core should very soon become compatible and perhaps 
a install note should tell sysadmins that adding a rule to their 
logrotate config might be a good idea...
