1) Add to list of deprecated features
2) Add deprecated features template to wiki page Tag:access=public, which says:

"This feature has been labeled as deprecated. The recommended
replacement is: access=yes.
The reason is documented in Deprecated features. You are still free to
continue to use or interpret this tag as you see fit since
OpenStreetMap does not have “banned features”. Under no circumstances
should you (semi-)automatically change “deprecated” tags to something
else in the database..." (this is a standard template)
