Is the liberal use of depreciated function ExAllocatePoolWithTag in ntfs.sys likely to cause errors?

I was investigating function calls for ntfs.sys for another issue I have, and realised that ntfs.sys was using ExAllocatePoolWithTag which has been depreciated since Windows 10 2004, according to nf-wdm-exallocatepoolwithtag



I did not search for other depreciated functions, but there probably are considering just how many times ExAllocatePoolWithTag is referenced...

Is there a beta patch for ntfs.sys? I have been having a considerable amount of issues with it for some time now.
