It is possible to have abandoned proposal and
de facto tag.
There is no such thing as "de facto proposal"
Maybe "on hiatus" euphemism would be a good solution
to mark proposals as abandoned in way that would be
less irritating to people who made them?

> It might be reasonable to move some of the older "proposed" ones to "abandoned" - but this has been controversial in the past, because the proposal author will often say "hey, it's not abandoned, I'm actually using this tag", and a number of proposal have resulted in "de facto" tags without every getting voted on.
