Where did I propose a major change?
I was pointing out that the given (and often repeated) argument is not
as good as it first seems.
Lot's of ideas currently floating around: "free form tags", "dictator",
"steering committee", "what I am tagging", ...
I don't know what's best. There are advantages and problems with each of
these ideas. Maybe we'll end up with a mix: "free form tags" in general
(for exploring new tags) and a "steering committee" for tags that are
used more than xy (to stabilize stuff for mappers and consumers). Maybe
we'll end up in a completely different wonderful way to tag things.
However, responding to a new idea with "that's not OSM" (as it was done)
is certainly not good to find the best way of tagging stuff ...
