It was deprecated in the sense that users are encouraged to use docker
on RHEL instead where possible. AFAIK, no decision has been made to
actually delete libvirt LXC from RHEL-7. It would be unlikely for it
to be deleted in an 7.x update, since that would obviously cause a
feature regression for anyone using it in current 7.x releases.
