Hi, is it possible to deprecate members of an entity (vs. deleting)? Or would that be handled by creating an attribute and custom views for consuming applications?

You may deactivate member (as opposed to deleting). The following article describes the process by which members may be de-activated or deleted via the Staging Process: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff486991.aspx. It is also possible to re-activate a previously deactivated member: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff487037.aspx

Thank you for the links. I just tried the deactivation/reactivation process and it seems to be synonymous with deleting and recovering from version history. To validate this, I tried deleting a member and found the status to be "De-Activated" in the transactions history. The re-activate process undeleted the original deletion.
My use case is a little bit different as I'm looking to keep all of the deprecated members available in the Explorer, but not available to consuming systems.
