I missed the discussion, because it wasn't on the mailing list (I
think it would have been a good idea to raise it on the list, though).
Having had a look at the page, I think it's reasonable. The
deprecation is on "highway=ford", in favour of adding "ford=yes" to a
something which already has "highway=<whatever>", so the highway keeps
its existing type.
As covered in the page, it works just like adding "bridge=yes" or
"tunnel=yes" to a stretch of road.
