Are URNs deprecated?

Hi Folks,

This Wikipedia sentence about URNs is puzzling:

	Since RFC 3986 in 2005, the use of the term has been deprecated
 	in favor of the less-restrictive "URI", a view proposed by a joint
 	working group between the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C)
 	and Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). Both URNs and 
 	Uniform Resource Locators (URLs) are URIs, and a particular URI
 	may be a name as well as a locator at the same time.

Does "the use of the term has been deprecated" mean that URNs have been deprecated? 


[1] The above quote came from: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uniform_Resource_Name
