At present I can see 3 potential ways:
1) simply go by how much a tag is actually used and some how document
tags, rather than documenting on a wiki. The down side is this may
potentially lead to an edit war if there is 2 or more opposing views
as each side 'updates' the database to fit their view.
2) some kind of committee to vet ideas, they may not necessarily have
the last say, but at present some people think discussion should only
occur on the mailing list, on the wiki on the forum and so these
disparate groups aren't talking to each other on a common
3) stop trying to use names for keys and values and use numbers, this
avoids hangups over language at the very least.
