You can always claim that every one is free to use his own rules. But
once a tag is "approved" and is documented as such on the wiki, it is
usually followed later by the contributors, by the data consumers and
by the editors presets. And if someone is trying to use his
own/different rule, he will be quickly corrected by someone else. You
are right. It is not "enforcement", It's a nice illusion of freedom.
