How many mappers or tag consumers are aware that either a vote or a 
discussion is taking place? The voting constituency is invariably a 
small, self-selected group.

For my part, I would disable the "Discussion" tag on Wiki pages. There 
is no indication that there is content in that tab, so any on-going 
disputes are invisible to people reading Wiki pages for information or 

(For the record, OpenSeaMap do not use any form of tag that links to 
variable data.)
