Yes, exactly.
The wiki page in question had a completely bogus definition.
I did try to correct the definition, but another user reverted the edit
saying that deprecated tags should not have a change in definition.

The bigger point here is that the Wiki is not the mapping community, and
really should not present itself as such.  Those who marked this tag
deprecated are not the mappers who were (and still are!) using it.
