IMHO you should either try to find out that your definition of the tag
is the one the majority of mappers supports (and uses), or you should
invent another tag.

+1, you shouldn't do this without discussing it first if you are
changing the actual meaning of a tag, or better: you should invent
another tag to describe what you want to express.
> * add a note to the discussion page, which someone searching the wiki

no, this is IMHO counterproductive, as different pages with different
content/definition for the same tag will 100% lead to chaos. IMHO you
should generally invent a new tag if possible.
