Installing a complete product through the dropins has never been a good idea because anything installed by this mechanism is treated as a best effort, and thus can be uninstalled by something installed by the regular p2 mechanisms.
For example. today everything is good, tomorrow one of your user install something through p2 (UI, marketplace, cli) and some parts of your product no longer work.
Even IBM for which the dropins has been made overly fancy has now stopped using it
Now to answer your questions:
> 1. Are there concrete plans to remove the dropins support in terms of a time schedule?
Not really, unless of course it started to limit us for some other work, or it is causing too much maintenance.
>2. Where can we find an official deprecation information?
I could not find the official trace, but I know for sure that this has been indicated, and in the worst case, take my words for it
