instead of

But in documentation, it is not advised - see note:

Note: this Codex entry is for documentation - core developers recommend you don't use this when registering your own post type


May I rely on that, and start building my site with it? or it will be removed soon?

I'd figure, it mainly is not advised, because it is intended just to use it for built-in post types, just because you can use for custom post types it does not change anything on that intention.

For example, if you use it and there are changes in WordPress that make that arguments use strictly available for built-in post types, then you are in trouble.

And, no, its not going to be removed soon - if ever, it likely will die with WordPress.
