Oh, no, *that* FAQ has been fixed. I'm talking about the *old* FAQ,
which a lot of us read in the 95% of glibc's life before you and others
did the great FAQ revamping. The deprecation of install_root was never
mentioned in NEWS, and when upgrading reading NEWS is more common than
rereading the entire FAQ and taking note of things that have vanished
from it. :)

And we are, now, as far as I can tell, at least in this area. (I never
understood why install_root was preferred over DESTDIR in any case. I
suspect it simply predated DESTDIR.)
