[Tagging] Keep tagging mistakes documented in Wiki?

What do you think, should typical misspellings and deprecated tagging continue to be documented on 
the respective Wiki pages, or should they be removed once they do not appear in the OSM database any 

IMHO, such a section is useful not only to reduce the misspelling, but also prevent new entries with 
the wrong tag.

See the dispute in shop=clothes for example, with the synonyms =cloth and =clothing, both are values 
that occasional re-appear with freehand tagging.
