There is a d6 style node_load in the trigger module. See patch.
There is another in a comment in form.inc, I don't know whether that comment as a whole needs changing, or to just change that load to an EFQ.
$ grep -rHn "node_load(array" . --exclude-dir=sites
./includes/form.inc:4126: * $node = node_load(array('uid' => $uid, 'type' => $type));
