[Tagging] designation=* is a mess in Germany

Thanks Pieren,

Yes, 'I should use the search function' is something I should tattoo
onto the back of my hand or something. (Maybe I start with a post-it.)

Your tool is nice. Maybe something like that can be integrated into OSMI too?

Lets see what Richard says about the trac ticket for Potlatch 2.

With the things I've heard so far, I would at least correct the tags
whenever I find them during my normal edits.
Seems with a now translated wiki page and a solution to the preset
problem visible at least on the far horizon, I won't piss off all to
many people in the process.
