there are for voting: we require at least 15 votes and a majority of "yes"
votes. Of course a won voting doesn't make your tag "approved" or used by
the community.

where do you get this from? First time I hear this.

yes, but they are cheap and fast to get.

yes,  but where is the problem? Of course it is desirable to participate as
early as possible in the process, but in the end we all have also other
things to do, so sometimes you only get to read the details of a certain
proposal when it is already in the voting phase.

5.       You can always vote no just for an irrelevant reason. (and that is

yes, but you shouldn't ;-)

as Pieren stated, there are less then 1M mappers, currently IIRR something
like 300.000 (with at least 1 edit), but most of them aren't very involved
and have only done few edits (less than 10). You won't want those people
with typically few dedication to and few experience with OSM to vote on
tags (IMHO).
