You can make a proposal, leave it in proposal state and just start
tagging, without any vote.
If it is a good proposal other users will use it and it will get
accepted without any vote.
The big advantage is that the discussion can be longer than just a few
weeks, with possibility to still change the proposal and you will get
examples to demonstrate and maybe also find some problems.
