I don't know about 1.6, but softdeps != NEW_BUFQ_STRATEGY. See man 4 options
and /NEW_BUFQ. I'm running with it stable for ... eons or sth like that
too, and it's nice. Not perfect still, but nice. And yes, I don't trust
softdeps or lfs either; you cough, it crashes. I can't complain about
wscons though (as long as you don't do cat /dev/(u)random).

And iirc, at the time the option was added, it was also said that it
probably would go default "soon", whatever that term refers to. Mind
that iirc.
