I have a question about "deposition." What is it?

I've got new Pagid oranges on new OEM solid rotors with stock 83SC brakes. I've rebuilt the brakes and run ATE blue.

I read the references to "deposition" on lighter cars with smaller brakes driven hard on the track. THat sounds like exactly what I have...1000kgs with 260hp track-only car that I am still braking in but fully intend to flog like a rented mule...whats deposition, why does it happen, why is it bad, and what can I do about it?
