So how do you easily: "normalise the mappers minds, renderers, editing 
software in regards to tags"?!?

Over several years past now, I have seen this discussions come and go. 
When someone was actually doing something, it usually ended up in a mess 
of wiki, mappers, editors and renderers disagreeing how to tag 
something. A confusion causing a *lot* more harm than any good.

It's simply a misconception, that just "cleaning up" the tag names will 
lead to an easier mapping experience.
