Linus complained that, in practice, it's impossible to set the deadlines correctly. In the end, application developers have to request the absolute worst-case execution time, even though the application will almost never need that much CPU time.
Where there's a will there's a way. Designate some subset of CPUs as realtime-only, then the worst that can happen is a task that could otherwise overcommit a CPU cannot be moved to that CPU.
