Of course....
It's not the first time I see such process : propose a new tag, do not
say it would deprecate anything until vote is accepted (or - if you
don't like "vote" : consensus is reached, or no more complains), wait
few months, change the wiki from "do not deprecate" to "recommend to
deprecate", wait few months, remove "recommend" from the wiki to just
"deprecated". This remembers me the "bus_stop" and "platform"
discussions. Or the second user account for imports.
These are unfair and sneaky methods to change things in OSM.
