A broken toilet is supposed to be fixed, and we can hope that it is
fixed fast, so this tag would be highly volatile if useful.
I think it will be more useful in a local db maintained by local people
and used from local services aware of what is to be fixed around.
Except if there is a world plumber squad parsing 40MBdiffs a day from a
remote bunker somewhere, ready to jump in a plane to avoid us the
disagreements underlied in the present example :)
Just my opinion, though.
