Indeed, it still says so.  Perhaps there haven't been many Prism 3 devices
around to add it to the documentation.

If you have any problems with Prism 3 device, please report them.  If it's
a PCI card, you may want to test the CVS version, which has the PCI ID
for Prism 3 cards.

If you have no problems and everything works, please report it as well
(with HostAP version and the card name, please), and the documentation
will be fixed.
