Nice proof of concept. But to be honest, the wiki software does most of that
already. And it's useful to be able to link to other tags in descriptions.

Now that I look closer, it looks like the wiki page has deliberately been
designed to be easy to machine parse. The definition for "surface:ice_road"
can be found, for example, by retrieving
wiki.osm/wiki/Template:Map_Features:surface then searching for the text


So it would be very easy for editors to regularly pull in this list of
definitions. I imagine Potlatch2 will do this.
