Yes, the wiki needs to be changed to tell people not to use the insulting
word 'soccer', especially as we try to use British English to stop tags
getting confusing.
Just using sport=football would be confusing, so I prefer
I would also guess that using the insulting term 'soccer' in the UK will
lead to vandalism by British football supporters
