Since "Haberdashery doesn't have it's own wiki page an(d) is quite an complicated word" may I ask: 
Wtf is it? 
.. And why on earth would we use it (over luggage or bag(s), which are understood by pretty much anyone)?

It is nice if you document the tags in use but for new tags you should use
proposal pages and link to the proposal from other pages.

Maybe we should think about linking from map feature to some proposal lists.
E.g. have a link to a list of all proposals shop=* from the map feature section

I also miss any anouncement on this mailing list.
