The existing editors (JOSM, Potlatch 2, iD) have presets.
All these editors are Free/Open Source and so you can take a look at
what they do.

You will find that a vast majority of users simply use the editor
presets, so by following them, your application will most easily
integrate with what's already being done.

Also, the wiki has documentation on recommendations, and taginfo can show use.

But if you follow the presets that the other editors use, I suspect a
great deal of these questions will be answered definitively, and since
Josm, Potlatch and iD constitute some 99.something% of all edits, your
bases will be pretty well covered.
