Because both schemes have some support. iD is muddling things with their
pushing of "tag upgrades" without explaining to user what is happening,
so it is quite hard to say how many mappers prefer each scheme.

But almost certainly, like with phone and contact:phone, there is no support to
deprecate either one.
