Well, yes and no.
People might remember that there once was a cafe. They might call the
building "the cafe" even if its no longer a cafe "in use".
So this is what the mapper *may* wanted to express. While I don't think
the combination is well done, it but could well have its reasons.
This obviously doesn't work pretty well in the 4th dimension, if you
want to tag: this once was a cafe, before that a pub, before a bakery
and before that a police_station.
Another even simpler problem, if a node is tagged:
disused refers to shop or amenity now?
