I oppose selectively deprecating contact:phone because without explaining whhy it diifers from other contact tags (populist appeals to tag counts don’t count) it makes tagging less orthogonal.

now I'm ready to open a new proposal which you can see here
I use the old proposal page for that but seperated content into section
to keep the history intact. The content is based on the discussion at
. It tends to deprecate `contact:phone` in favor of the more used de-
facto `phone` tag. It's awful that we have two tags for the same
puropose in our database and that makes it more difficult for
developers and researchers to work with our data.
