could be ok in this case (actually much more ok than listing
amenity=embassy with its stable 11000+ uses as deprecated).
It seems a bit strange there are only 1447 office=diplomatic but 5500
diplomatic=*, seems the office key isn't needed here.

Generally I agree with Frederik, we should be very reluctant to mark tags
as deprecated (i.e. it should happen after their usage significantly
dropped in favor of another tag, not for cases where the usage is stable or
still raising, and multiples of the alternative tagging).
