I've just updated the page to remove roles specification.

The specific roles chapter became a specific elements one since it gives
useful recommendation to map elements.
Nevertheless no roles remain on it as for not confusing mappers.

If there are no formal suggestion or comments left, I would go on with
focusing on examples on proposal's page and directly in OSM to see what
does it look like.
It would be important to test associations of tags on practical situations,
wouldn't you?
It's obviously out of question to rename tags massively but 1 or 2 power
plants may highlight problems.

You may have a look to Hoover Dam next to Las Vegas, Nevada or this
changeset http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/changeset/15642946 (I'll
update it later to match last proposal modifications) to see dispersed

Such changesets would be reverted if proposal is rejected after voting.
