I would say that use is deprecated for things like shop=* and in use
for things like quarries, buildings, adits, bunkers etc

Not sure about growth, but usage for disused:railway and disused:amenity
is higher than of disused=shop.

There is also disused:highway, disused:aeroway, disused:landuse with a decent use.
