There is always a border where usefull meets unusefull.
When mapmakers do not support object information on their maps, every extra information is useless.
I think the period of a historic place is within the usefull information tags to a object.

  I made a starting page. I also added some initial values for
  historic:period to the page, but there is still space for more detail,
  e.g. historic:era to put the name of a regent/despot or what the
  classification is. I would like to have the page in the end quite
  detailed, including years (if possible) and so on.

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 ?
