Correction: obsolete is only used 6 times with tags and 0 keys at the
moment, but "discardable" is also used with 7 keys in addition to 1
tag, so that's 8 times.

The "discardable" status is clearly different from "deprecated" as you

It would be good to get some ideas about how to describe the correct
way to deprecate a feature.

I remember it was hard to figure out how to add a new item to the
Deprecated Features page (camp_site=camp_pitch in my case), and there
wasn't in mention in the Proposal Process page.
