The stats version is more comprehensive than the mstats one. Same for
zscore. So stats/mstats can be easily synchronized:
https://github.com/rgommers/scipy/commit/25b382e (zmap/zscore)
https://github.com/rgommers/scipy/commit/c970fabf (other deprecations)

I've checked that the mstats.cov tests are not needed in numpy.ma, there are
quite a few tests there.
