[OSM-dev] Reverts from the woodpeck_repair account

Just by accident during my work on OWL I encountered couple of
changesets done by the woodpeck_repair account that are reverting some
automated changes which removed deprecated tags. For example:
I am just curious what is the point of such revert? It seems to me that
the original edit was good (replacing deprecated tags). Perhaps it was
not discussed as the woodpeck_repair's comment suggests but still it
does not merit a revert - or am I missing something?
For me such reverts just introduce unneeded clutter in the history
database - thousands of new versions in the history. And the end result
will be that this revert will then again be slowly reverted by
individual mappers replacing deprecated tags...
Can someone (perhaps Frederik as the opreator of this bot?) explain what
is the reasoning behind reverts like this?
