I took Warin's question to mean what would happen if standard carto
deliberately chose to handle disused=yes the same way as
disused:*=*.  Therefore not a bug to be fixed, but an intentional
permanent change to behaviour.

If that happened, I would stop marking physical objects as disused.  The
fact that a physical object exists, and is therefore rendered, is far more
important than whether it is in use or not.  I suspect many mappers would
do the same.  I'd add a note saying that it's disused, so might many other
mappers.  But notes are free-form, so they may use words other than
"disused."  That would make it harder to craft reliable queries to find or
ignore disused objects of a particular type.
