It is no longer usual to tag individual objects with "source". The
source will be obvious from the importing account *and* the changeset
comment or changeset tags; don't add "source" to every imported object.

Same for "source:date" - I assume that all objects imported in one
changeset will share the same release date so better use a changeset tag.

I am unconvinced of "ref:bag". Many people have imported external IDs
thinking they might be useful some time, and they never were. How do you
expect mappers to deal with that - if they merge two buildings or split
a building, what are they expected to do with "ref:bag"?

I don't understand "bag:function" - "This information is valuable and
can later be used to manually attach the function to buildings." - who
is going do do that later? If we have humans processing the data now,
why not have them do that now, or else discard the tag because nobody is
going to do it later.
