Yes they are still usable, but eventually they will be removed. Samba is 
actively working on totally removing SMBv1 and, as you have seen in the 
link you posted, more SMBv1 parameters have been deprecated. Whilst it 
is highly unlikely that SMBv1 will be totally removed in 4.14.0, it will 
be removed before long. It may be that Microsoft will decide to remove 
it first, they have already stopped Windows 10 using it by default and 
if they remove it, it is game over, Without the main client, there is no 
point to Samba supporting SMBv1.
