The following has nothing to do with the discussed feature, but

I wonder why many people try to force the approval of a tag by fast
votes on the wiki. A tag gets approved by uses in the data and software
handling it.

As a proposal you can almost added it the same way on the wiki as a
approved tag and you can change anything that might not work or find a
better solution while testing.

You can always create a proposal and link to it on the wiki.
