I don't know how these checks were done, but it is easy to have false 
positives. If you use code like:

   if (class_exists('t3lib_l10n_parser_Llxml')) {
     /** @var $xmlParser t3lib_l10n_parser_Llxml */
     $xmlParser = t3lib_div::makeInstance('t3lib_l10n_parser_Llxml');
     $LOCAL_LANG = $xmlParser->getParsedData(
       $llFile, $GLOBALS['LANG']->lang
   } else {
     $LOCAL_LANG = t3lib_div::readLLXMLfile(
       $llFile, $GLOBALS['LANG']->lang

An automatic check could easily indicate that it uses a removed 
function, while in reality it contains code that handles compatibility 
with several core versions.

There will be some improvements for TER regarding incompatible 
extensions. More information will follow in the next days.
