OSM in principle is for things that exist.

disused in OSM indicate that the feature is there, and can be easily 
restored back into functioning condition.
abandoned in OSM means you can still see something of the feature there, 
but it cannot be easily restored.

planning in OSM is strange. I don't map it. However some insist on 
adding things in the 'planning stage' .. so this does provide for it.
Where construction has started on one end then I see the point of having 
the rest of it as 'planned'.

But something that is no longer there? .. OHM is the place for that. OHM 
is evolving and young, so there will be times where things are not so good.
I have moved some things out of OSM into OHM. And will continue to do so 
where they are no longer on the ground.
Some things are historical even where they are still on the ground, I 
copy those from OSM to OHM .. but leave them in OSM.
