When you say "deprecate vector<bool>", don't you really mean "remove the
vector<bool> specialization"?

In other words, if someone wants the std::vector interface, they will
continue to use std::vector<bool>. They just won't get a specialization

Thus it doesn't seem to me that a dynamic bitset template has to support
vector<bool> syntax for backward compatibility reasons.
