I've updated the wording to this:

\item The set of macros \code{RCPP_FUNCTION_} etc ... from the
\code{preprocessor_generated.h} file will be deprecated in the
next version
of \code{Rcpp}, i.e they will still be available but will
generate some
warning in addition to their expected behavior.

In the first release 12 months after now, the macros will be removed
from \code{Rcpp}.

Users of these macros (if any) should start replacing them
with more up to date code, such as using attributes or modules.
}

Feel free to change it if this does not suit you.

This just makes it slightly more difficult to do, because with my
proposed approach, I could just have made the changes right after each
release. But I'll comply with those requirements.
