[Tagging] Deprecation of non-approved values for diplomatic=?

I think that the only deprecated tag in the accepted proposal is
"amenity=embassy" (which is indicated on the wiki page too).

The wrong diplomatic value are just what old tagging scheme lead to. It
doesn't need to be deprecated to me as it never existed officially (i
think) - and it will probably be fixed at some point in the future when
contributor update the embassy/consulate/...

The only action i would take is to *add the note on the wiki page of
"diplomatic=*" for each of the "non-approved" value*, where we specifically
tell what is the new approved *sub-tag* (so people know that there is an
alternative). Like for "diplomatic=honorary_consulate", note in the
description that it could be tagged as "diplomatic=consulate" +
"consulate=honorary_consul" with the new tagging scheme.
