Not deprecated, but considered on a case-by-case basis. It is a question 
of whether important navigation information would be deleted if the 
seamark tags were removed. In the case of bridges, the safe air draft 
and beam are important attributes that should be kept, but a bridge that 
is absent those seamark attribute tags need not carry the 
"seamark:type=bridge" tag.
