We've managed to handle creating definitions that we could use
worldwide for pretty much everything else, including roads, sports,
other schools, various amenities, etc.

One of the beauties of OSM is that the tags are relatively unified
between nations, where they're not, it's usually just because a
certain feature is highly localized.

I'd be very sad if we threw away so many years of international
cooperation and consensus and I don't understand why these tags can't
be defined in the same way other tags are.
