if the bridge is not mapped, but just an attribute to another feature (here
abandoned railway), and that other feature doesn't get rendered anymore, it
might seem for mappers interested in that feature that the issues are
intertwined. I agree they are not. Also abandoned features do not guarantee
that the bridge is still physically present or usable.

I hope (and believe) that the carto-osm-style will soon render
man_made=bridge objects, so that bridges can be rendered as objects on
their own.
