wires, should never be 'buried', meaning they should never be lost in a wall, etc. you should cap wires off in a readily accessable box. if you can identify a wire, meaning you are absolutley sure a wire goes from a to b with no other connections; i use a method. first i tape a written tag on the wire staiting its' former use, then i wrap tape on the end and fold each wire over and tape it to itself, creating a noose out of each individual wire.the terminated cable should physically be unable to conduct in this format, and the next guy down the road gets to know what you did.
