At least in my own irc chat room, the tagging advice will be consistant :-)
But seriously, it's actually easier to emalgimate 10(or so) external
dataset schemas into a cohesive Universal Schema.
.... then after, I make the SchemaTroll2osm.csv file available where
only osm tags need to be changed.
And it's just the last part which has fierce debate.
