Wondering about this one?

To prevent armchair mapping of old points that have been identified as no
longer existing, or to stop somebody wandering around looking for a point
that "should" be here, would it be better to leave these tagged as
demolished (destroyed?):survey_point=yes?

BTW, what is the difference between

While they may look similar, a survey_point=beacon is intended for
surveying; while a man_made=beacon is usually used for navigation purposes
& will usually be lit, or active electronically.
