> railway=disused is a very old and established tag.

actually, the very old and formerly established way was railway=*,
railway=disused is not so old, is quite established and often complemented
by disused=*

disused:railway is following the (newer) general convention <status>:*=*,
introduced to overcome additional qualifiers like disused=yes, ruins=yes,
abandoned=yes, dismantled=yes, demolished=yes, razed=yes etc.
