Thanks again for all your answers;

I begin to understand the operating of OSM tagging :)
I don't need voting now... I understood that voting process is necessary
when you make a proposal... It could be for this
for my horrible english :P
If the proposal is used in OSM (in future), I would like that could be in Map
Features page <http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Map_Features>.(It was
useful for me, when I began to map in OSM for know possible tags)

About the key:

   - *Existing values:* There are someone of OpenSeaMap here? I offer me to
   add the values "bridge" and "look" (that OpenSeaMap uses) in this wiki
   page <http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features/Obstacle>. I
   could create two key=obstacle sections: for highways and for waterways.
   Obviously, will need help.
   - *Voting:* I will continue with the discussion and with the usage
   tracking. It's funny (and productive). I won't open the vote for now.
   - *Value "unevenness":* An important observation was posted in the
   discussion page<http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Talk:Proposed_features/Obstacle#Alternatives_for_value_.C2.ABunevenness.C2.BB>(the
last comment in the section). I don't know what could be the better
   name for this value... In past I was using «needed_hands». Any suggestions?
   I'm thinking in «sudden_incline» or «vertical_unevenness»... I'm blocked ;)

Thanks a lot!!
