If the items no longer function as how they are described, and not will 
come back, I would delete them right away. It makes no sense to have 
"broken" objects in the database. And then add "landuse=construction" 
around the area.

If it's temporary, then... "it depends". access=no works for the roads. 
Not sure about other clever tags :-)
