approved : a proposal was made and approved during the vote.
no proposal has in the meantime depreciated this tag.

de facto: a not-voted tag but whose important use and absence
of criticism makes it the tag to use for the described usecase.

in use : I see 2 possible meanings:
or it is a generic value for tags that have not been further analyzed 
and better classified in a more specific category.
or it is a value to say "not approved, not de facto". 
landuse=forest<>natural=wood" could probably be in this situation
since there is not a de facto tag to use to describe a forest but 2.
probably that a better word would be necessary, if not to succeed in 
having one "de facto"
