It seems like you would prefer if first we defined all the criteria & 
rules & process, and _only then_ gave out money, right?

Well that's one approach. With OSM tagging, we don't talk in abstract 
about tags, and meanings and schemes and then define something and only 
use that. Tags grow, processes and standards and “the spirit” of it 
grow. Unwritten rules & conventions are defined. So why use part of that 
approach with this sort of funding?
