Should I consider the warning when converting model to sdf format in ROS Fuerte using gzsdf?

I am converting the .model files in simulator_gazebo/gazebo_worlds/objects to the sdf format, since I receive a warning when I use the .model files. When I convert the files, I get the same warning as when using them.

$ rosrun gazebo gzsdf print desk6.model > desk.sdf
Warning [] Gazebo SDF has no gazebo element
On July 1st, 2012, this formate will no longer by supported
Convert your files using the gzsdf command line tool
You have been warned!

Am I doing the conversion correctly? I couldn't find the documentation for the gzsdf command, so I hope I am using the right filetypes.

Should I worry about this warning? Will the object behave "normally"? Is this warning a bug or meaningful?

Another question, shouldn't there be sdf format files in the simulator_gazebo/gazebo_worlds/objects folder? Since sdf is the apparently the new chosen format for gazebo? Doesn't the warning mean that the other formats are not to be used anymore?
