What about a pub that is closed for 2 months? What's the limit? Anyway, we
have two points of view:

1) It's still a pub. In that case, use the amenity=pub key with adequate

2) It's no more a pub. In that case, just delete the amenity=pub tag.
There's no point in a disused:foo=bar namespace. That's either historical
mapping or hiding from the renderer, both of which are wrong in OSM.
