While the "Possible misinterpretations" section is great, I think most
people will find it to be too long and won't read it. I think it might
belong on a separate page rather than on one tag page or on all (via a
template). I'd suggest prominently linking to it in all affected tag
pages, but then have a shorter, practical "if this, then that" list
customized for each tag page. Take a look at my rework of
highway=turning_circle for how I'd handle it for the other pages:

Note that I also put this section in a template, which you asked to be
done, and have created a primary page for this to exist at, in case
the method I used on turning circle is found to be suitable.

That page name is the best I could come up with, if you or others have
a better one then we can move the page.
