But it can take years :-(,
1/4 of the sub_station/substation tags are still sub_station: 
Another obsolete tag that is still is "in use" is building=entrance,
see  still over 40.000 places usign a tag that has been obsoleted
over 4 years ago.(*)
Legacy tags are hard to get rid of.
(*) I think it's over 4 years, the wiki page mentions "overtaken in 2012".
