if it is surveyable/verifiable:
why using disused: prefix would not be preferable?

if it not surveyable/verifiable:
how it is supposed to be mapped?

The difference is that anyone may revert 
or change https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:operational_status%3Dclosed
while deprecation via proposal is much stronger

Note also that I specially started this thread to give opportunity
anyone opposing to such change.

Also, in case of any serious opposition I revert such changes
(I did it here for Key:operational_status right now).
