The downside of that is that, the last time I checked, standard carto
doesn't
render disused:building=*.  The last time this was discussed, some of us
suggested that disused: applied to physical objects should not stop them
being rendered.  It makes sense to no longer render
disused:amenity=place_of_worship as a place of worship but it does not make
sense to not render disused physical objects.  As I recall, the best
suggestion
anyone could come up with was use the deprecated disused=yes for
physical objects (not perfect for other reasons, but the best we have).

Yes, I'm aware there are other cartos that may handle things differently.
But the
standard carto is the one we use to check what we've done.
