Well, maybe it helps if we take a look at both historical graphs:

If we consider that around 3600 of those landuse=school results are
(probably from) imports, that puts both tags in a different perspective.
Anyway, like most of us already know from recent discussions in this
list, deprecation is viewed with great resistance and many hot
discussions, and I just prefer not to go in that direction.
