No, never really been. Generally speaking, OSM tries to make it fun for 
the mappers to map stuff. If someone wants to use it it's their job, not 
OSMs first interest. May sound a bit funny.

You seem to have a good idea about how databases work, and how OSM data 
should look like to best fit your needs. Fine. Unfortunately, this is 
just exactly the wrong reason to ask for tag changes.

Again, you seem to have no idea how OSM is working.
