My proposal back then dealt with this by stating:
"Any life_cycle [/status] other than in_use implies that the general
public cannot use the feature."

Therefore, your examples would violate the definition of the key. Also,
I don't see a practical use for additional values that express "works as
usual". In fact, I don't even think that you should explicitly set them
at all, this should simply be the default case.
