And my thinking is that there is a difference between a disused building
still a building) and a disused place of worship (it's no longer a place of
worship).  It is misleading to render a disused building as though the
did not exist.  It is misleading to render a disused place of worship as
it is still a place of worship.  Disused physical objects merit different
treatment from disused functions.

Yep.  Freely admitted.

I suggested that as an alternative the last time this was discussed.  I'm
to use disused=yes as things stand at present and I'd be happy to use the
disused prefix if it no longer prevented the rendering of physical
objects.  Either
way is fine by me.

However, it seems that two people from the carto crowd think disused=yes is
the way to go.  Maybe there are others in the carto crowd who think it
to have the disused prefix behave differently for physical objects.  That's
of the reasons I'd like some sort of assurance that minds have been made up.

> Stop tagging for the render.
I'm not lying for the renderer.  I'm using one established way of tagging
in preference to a different, established way of tagging that thing.  So
are others.
