What does shop=cafe, disused=yes mean?  When a cafe is abandoned, it's
no longer a cafe, it's now an abandoned building.

I think the renderer is right in this example, and the tagger is, most
likely, wrong (maybe there is an example of a cafe which is still a
cafe, it's just a "disused" cafe, but this seems rare, and not
something that should be "widely used").
