Proposal to delete all curve_geometry=* tags

I would like to perform a mechanical edit to delete all curve_geometry=* tags.
https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/keys/curve_geometry

It’s an undocumented tag and seems to be entirely for renderer use (although AFAIK there are no renderers that use it). They were mostly added ~6 years ago. There’s no benefit to it as curved geometry can be detected and smoothed automatically without these nodes, purely based on the angle difference.
this tag would also be a pain to maintain, as (I assume) it requires every curve to have the tags.
