+1 - it takes a certain amount of audacity to leave all those beckoning 
input fields blank. "No, sorry, I *only* want to map the fact that 
there's a tram line, I don't know operator, voltage, lines, operating 
rules, or gauge..."

But that could be solved on the user interface side by splitting tags in 
"this tag is really important for this kind of feature" (like "name" for 
a street), and "these tags are optional".
