[Tagging] Use of namespace as a Lifecycle

Hi!

As I have received some notes for Mueschel and other user in a authorized
import of the Spanish Cadastre I want to explain some variations I use in
tagging of erased items. The rationale is simple: If I can use the prefix
"was:" and also exists https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Namespace and
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Lifecycle_prefix why I can't use it
with exact information: nor "was" but the year or the exact date of the
information (I know it because I am from the zone of that item).

Yes, I see there is with some suffixes, specially name  . But if I do that
I will lose some information I have had with the other tags. Also I would
might use it a suffix (one user told me query it aat taginfo : about ~100
uses) . And then I think: What if I do the same but with the prefix (as the
lifecycle prefix) . In that way the tags will be ordered by year, making
easy the possibility to make a map with a specific year, for example. Also
I don't lose any information and as the prefix (not new tags, sorry) is
numeric when you order the tags to edit in software like JOSM these are
together without bug disturbances or influences on the present of the
information. Also these kind of tags would be able to be ignored to
standard systems as iD, for example. It is better to make that in prefix
than the suffix.
