Well - not exactly, this redirect as well as the removal of 
tourism=bed_and_breakfast as an alternative from 
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:tourism%3Dguest_house has been 
done about a year ago.  There is 'Deprecated' noted on 


but without there having been a proposal to deprecate it.

tourism=bed_and_breakfast exists 609 times at the moment, 
guest_house=bed_and_breakfast 154 times.

Generally given the huge influence the standard style has on mapping and 
that a lot of people articulated the need to differenciate between B&B 
and larger guest houses in discussions i agree this change indeed is 
probably not to the better.
