There is a reason that was searched for tests -- it's to catch any doctests that are defined on model methods.

I'm not necessarily arguing against the decision to deprecate as a source of tests, but given that it wasn't a completely arbitrary decision in the first place, it's worth documenting the specific consequences.

I don't think this should be a documentation ticket as its scope is much larger than just that, correct?
