We really need a consistent life cycle scheme that defines all stages of 
an objects life, that is proposed, construction, (active), disused, 
abandoned and historic (completely gone). The <life cycle state>:<key>=* 
scheme is my favourite. Somebody just needs to make a proposal (it would 
basically be a generalisation of the disused:*=* tag).

See http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Comparison_of_life_cycle_concepts 
for a comparison of current ways of tagging life cycles.
