[Tagging] Feature Proposal - RFC - (contact:phone)

when you are talking about two competing tagging methods for the same
thing, both of which have large existing usage, deprecating one of them
does not at all help you to achieve what your goal - they will remain in
use in parallel.
It would be a different story if you were to deprecate a little-used tag,
where there is a chance to re-tag manually the deprecated tags.
Another thing: OSM is full of multiple-tagging options - please do not try
to eliminate them, unless they are really small (use-wise) tags and yo can
offer to eliminate the minority tagging scheme.
