[Tagging] building=disused

JOSM warns me that "building=disuse" is deprecated, but doesn't tell
me what to use instead.

On the wiki, nether [[Key:building=disused]] nor
[[Tag:building=disused]] exist, and [[Key:building]] says nothing aout
how to tag "disused", "derelict" or "empty" buildings.

Is JOSM correct, what's the preferred alternative, and why is there no
easily-found documntation for this common use case?
