Yes. Especially in cases of tags that
are 

- duplicates of far more used tags
- without support among any editors
- without real support among mappers
- without support among data consumers
- page was created without discussion

In blatant cases like landcover=water
I would also add tag to list of
deprecated or at least deprecated status
and add note strongly encouraging using one of standard tags.

Are they also offering some
sort of argument against doing this?
