well, the wiki does, it says: under way (at least it did until now).

how else should we ever come to a conclusion, if we start mapping as
we like and decide to only later evaluate if the initial decision and
classification was useful? I do agree that this is a good way to
rapidly develop tags and move on, but I don't agree that the outcome
should never be structured later (because that will obviously mean to
change "well established" tags).
