I agree with this in general - I freely armchair delete
tiger:reviewed=no ways that are wrong, but not ways that have been
reviewed but don't match imagery.
I have deleted some local railway=abandoned ways that were long since
buried by buildings or the entire landscape bulldozed down, but found
that they 'grew back'. So my compromise is to set them as
railway=dismantled. Thus they are a true OSM historical feature.
I think most people agree however that OSM cannot realistically
support an unlimited set of historical items in the current database -
they would make editing current physical items very confusing.
