...turning an adjective (obsolete) into a verb (obsoleted).

One interesting thing about English is it allows for side-trips to variations in meaning aka "informal" terms/words to be added to the common lexicon.

The term reminds me of the magnificent Twilight Zone (TOS) episode with actor Burgess Meredith as, "The Obsolete Man".
Sublime.
