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

\RequirePackage{etex}
\documentclass[12pt,oneside,openany]{memoir}
\reserveinserts{10}
\usepackage{bigfoot}
\usepackage{hyperxmp}
\begin{document}
Hello World

\end{document}

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