To my mind there is a problem with applying lifecycle prefixes to physical
objects: they vanish
from the map (standard carto).  It's great for cases like a pub that has
closed but there's a
possibility of it being bought and re-opened: disused:amenity=pub.  Not so
good for
abandoned buildings: abandoned:building=yes because something that is
clearly present
on the ground (with broken windows and other damage) vanishes from the
map.  Which is
why, for physical objects, I end up using abandoned=yes and disused=yes.

Maybe the renderer should treat lifecycle prefixes on physical objects
differently.  Or the wiki
should be amended to state that disused=yes is valid and preferred to a
lifecycle prefix on
physical objects.  Or something.
