+1 on this thread .. good to see specific, easy, concrete steps (define a file format!), which don't try to change anything fundamental in the culture of OSM tagging, but rather enhance the toolset around it.

I'd suggest to 

- create a wiki page 
- identify the use cases for this list and document on the wiki, i.e.
    * list can be used for immediate user feedback in online editors
(potlatch, josm, etc.)
    * list can be used in validation tools 
    * list shall *NOT* be used to enforce the usage of a predefined set of
tags
    * others? 

- create a proposal for the "data model" to be provided by this lists,
discuss
  it and agree to it 

- create a proposal for the machine readable "encoding" (xml, structured
ascii, whatever), 
  discuss it and agree to it

- create a proposal for the data flow, discuss it and agree to it 
  - where is the data maintained? On the wiki? somewhere else? In other
words: where is
    the master
  - which tool/tools generate "the list"? 
  - where is "the list" deployed to and how can we retrieve it from there?

Definetly agreed, how do we start ?
