  Sometimes even approved tags are not useful.   I tagged a  large number of 
approved contact:phone= , but found that OSM map data consumers I looked at 
all used the *disapproved* tag phone=.   Tagwatch shows more phone= than 
contact:phone=.   Practicality overrules at the end of the day.   Luckily 
for JOSM to make things easy, I did a mass change to the disapproved phone=.

  I've never understood the process either.  I started several shop= 
proposals which have been superseded by office= equivalents.   I don't see 
anything wrong with the office= tag, but some of the entries could use some 
additional information.

 - Should I just put a redirect to office= on the proposal pages?
