I'm sorry but maybe some misspellings changed the message. So let me

Renderers often don't support life cycle tags, but that doesn't matter
because we don't tag for the renderer/applications, right? If you just add
a disused tag, the route likely will still be rendered in current map
styles made for hikers. That may or may not be a good thing. I think it's
good if the route is still open to the public, otherwise no.

Didn't mean to say hiking routes should not be rendered, sorry for the
confusion. I think they should.
