> Here's the thing.  In terms of OSM statuses, "de facto" means that the tag is in use. 
"de facto" means rather "in wide use, considered as standard tagging scheme for this feature,
widely accepted/used/supported where relevant"

"in use" means "some people are using it but not widely"

For example highway=motorway is clearly "de facto", while building=religious is "in use".
