[Mono-dev] Reason for introduction of CS0809 warning in mcs ?

I noticed that very recently CS0809 was added to mcs, which warns against an
obsolete member that overrides a non-obsolete member.

This warning does not exist in csc (1.x and 2.x), and so I wonder why this
was added.  Is it considered a bad practice to mark a member obsolete in a
derived class ?
