The license is listed on the wiki page as being "CC-by". Please specify 
a version of CC BY and link to the statement by the data source that 
puts it under the license.

Additionally, CC BY 3.0 is not compatible by itself as its attribution 
requirements are impractical for a crowd-sourced geodatabase. You will 
need to request special permission from the source.

You are proposing to to add "ocha:pcode" and "ocha:old_code" tags, yet 
neither of these are documented. Could you add documentation, and 
explain these tags?
