as long as it exists. It could be a *barrier* for navigation. And (any 
kind of) navigation is, where maps are for.
May be it emerges on the map every 10 years ;) No.

Here you might add an altitude-tag 'below', notice, etc.?

Generally if a structure is gone, I would delete it.
But (I think) the data alloyed into OSM's mind.
So may be in *future*, you can see a landscape-animation. That would be
