```Yes, these need to be fixed.

Mixed case in the function index means either the C binding name (or Fortran08 name) was used where the language-independent name should be used, or \func or \mpifunc were used for a language-binding-specific name (which is incorrect macro usage).  Chapter authors need to fix this.  There as also some non-functions in the function index; those must be fixed.

Example index entries need to be checked; I added a bunch to context as many examples were missing the index entries (made with \exindex).

I think it is ok for removed and deprecated names to show up in the index.
