It is the first phrase on the mapfeatures-page though (the page I
always went when I was new to OSM and was looking for a tag):
"OpenStreetMap does not have any content restrictions on tags that can
be assigned to OSM-Elements (Nodes Node, Ways Way or Relations
Relation). You can use any tags you like as long as the values are
verifiable. "
