etex is not depreceated. it is held of for those situations where you really need it.

And in that case it should be loaded before the documentclass.

>From documentation to elocalloc:

For existing documents etex may still be loaded and will work as before, however in general it is best not to load etex as it will over-write the new allocation scheme with its own.

So, indeed it is not deprecated but warned

Loading etex before documentclass can blow up

As far as minimal example for "dimension too large" I will try to produce it but it may take pretty long time
