status=* is a vague key with a variety of meanings.
Among the top 95% of values, possible interpretations include:
- condition (bad, medium, good, passable or is this access?), see key condition=*
- water body class (река, озеро, ручей meaning "river", "lake", "creek" in Russian)
- physical access (locked, open locked=*)
Tag:natural=volcano warns against using this key, and suggests instead being more specific about which status you're describing.
For routes, the use of status=proposed (/alternate/temporary/connection) is incorrect, as the correct key to use is state=*, e.g. state=proposed should be used for proposed routes.
