it may be a good idea so that others can understand and use the tag.  Tags
without wiki pages may get used quite a bit (like pipeline - see
http://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/keys/pipeline#overview) and tags on the
wiki may hardly get used (ie
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:craft%3Dfalles).  Useful tags will
tend to get used even if they're not on the wiki.

That being said, since it is being used now, I started a key=pipeline page
now, so that we can document the usage.  I hope you'll expand on it!

Cheers, Brad
