Shop=boutique - deprecation proposal

This shop value is highly confusing for many mappers as this is false friend in French with distinct meaning to English one.

I would recommend asking mappers to replace it with other shop values. Many, but not all would be well expressed by shop=clothes (some of them are completely different shops, again, especially in French speaking regions)

Is there some good reason to avoid removal of this shop value from use? It seems to be a big trap for data consumers and osm mappers who speak French
