Am I the only one who is thinking that such information are better placed in
Wikipedia than in OSM ? Or many of this list readers decided to lazily shut
their mouth because they hope  that such tags will never become popular ?
What is the next proposal : a tag for the name of the captain of the viking
boats who invaded England during first millenium ? A subtag for the weight
and length of the king Arthur's sword ?
