Yes, but proposing/voting is not really important for simple cases
like this - you want to tag shop=military_surplus, you should go ahead
- there's no need to make big formalities of it, people use all sorts
of shop=* tags. If you want to make a wiki page for that tag, please
do make a wiki page, but don't feel you need to add rfc/voting/etc to
it. I'd suggest you remove the "{{Proposal_Page}}" template, and carry
on mapping :)
