I have put back above the line to which I replied
and which  makes your answer wrong.
in case of a was:SHOP=*, the previous shop (what's inside
the building) has gone. and if you are consistent with yourself (you say
that osm is not a database for memorizing history) when I survey it,
the only thing I see is that the previous store was not there anymore.
it's why I and some others use was:shop=oldvalue + shop=newvalue
it is usefull to warn the next mapper about a recent change.

the current discussion with disused shows that there are 2 meanings :
still exists but not used <> doesn't exist anymore. was: has the merit
to be clear that what is described doesn't exist anymore, no matter how
it happened.
