personally I have changed them to "disused:amenity=drinking_water" (and
back then).
The problem with additional status qualifiers is that dataconsumers must be
aware of them (usually none is aware and all continue to show drinking
water where the currently isn't).

Certainly, deleting isn't a good option, and we discourage it for cases
like this (I guess it IS indeed discouraged).
