... but depending on the feature, they may do elsewhere.

I've no idea if anyone renders disused ATMs (I don't) but on cue I've 
just remembered and updated 
https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/5179225222 rather than just removing 
it in case someone does.  I'm sure it'll get reinstated at some point, 
and I'll change the tagging back. If the ATM had actually been removed 
I'd have just deleted it, but in this case it is still there

Plenty of other "disused / no longer useful for the original purpose" 
are major landscape features that deserve to be recorded, and sometimes 
the best tag really is disused:foo=bar.

Best Regards,
