Hi Peter,

protect_class doesn´t exist anywhere. It should be an OSM-own tag.

but I made a decision for "protect_type" because it implies less any 
quality rating than "_class" and its shorter.
it should have its "valence" in combination with protected_area.

than I will update the wiki-page ...

- instead protect_id the key protect_type

and start the follwoing external ID-keys with a "ref:"

ref:NLWKN=NSG LÜ 259
_Question_ ist, if names-syntax above is usefull, because its barely 
significant, better:
ref:protection_code_NLWKN=NSG LÜ 259
ref:hecl_code_BAYER=UZT 56 HH

oh ... I thought, most of mapper would not realise this "backend-action" 
and would be a kind of happy ... but yes, your right.
