If it has sat around unloved for years why would voting for it make it 
suddenly useful?

Discuss it, try using it, help support its use in software if you can, 
but please don't go through the broken, pointless charade of voting for 
a tag that has been untouched for years.

Voting for tags to 'approve them' is stupid - there are *no* approved 
tags in OpenStreetMap, only ones that people find useful.
