abutters no longer favoured?

I'm quite surprised to find this still documented as thing worth using. I know abutters tags were used a lot when I first started OSM, and they were rendered on Tiles@home (different coloured strips by the roads) but I thought they were no longer favoured these days -- Harry Wood (talk) 23:34, 7 April 2016 (UTC)

The absence of obtrusive "this tag is deprecated" banners is indeed curious. Perhaps this key has become so utterly forgotten that people don't even remember to change the wiki entry...? --Tordanik 17:48, 13 April 2016 (UTC)
From who\where do you get 'official' permission to give such a banner. Seems the three of us are in agreement. I don't know of any formal process, but if there is, I'd want to go through that rather than just tag it up that way myself errantly. JeopardyTempest (talk) 21:51, 7 May 2016 (UTC)
