Between the two extremes, completely removing or putting the controversed
tag 'event' prominent in the Map Features (where the feedback shows that the
tag is far away from a consensus), I tried something new with this
intermediate solution where the 'event' page remains in the wiki, is
referenced by the 'Key:historic' page and also in one entry 'historic:other
values' in the template used by Map Features. Thus if someone is searching
the tag in the wiki, he will find it. But he will also notice that it is not
considered as a "map feature". This is a lot of efforts to find a compromise
to satisfy everyone.
You will find anyway in the database much much more undocumented tags than
documented tags. So keep the Map Features page for what it has been created.
