Frankly, this sounds like typical astronaut tagging. A group of people
got together and thought: "Now what could we *possibly* want to tag
about a lamp?" and everything has been written down.
Next thing, a helpful soul will create a JOSM template that has
*every* *single* *one* of the 20 tags in that proposal, and gives
people the impression that they should really know the aperture angle
or else the tagging isn't good.
I recommend to shorten the proposal to two or three tags and let
people map a couple thousand lamps first, then see where the journey goes.
Therein lies the quality of a proposal - to capture the essential
bits, not to make endless lists of detailed stuff that could possibly
Creating a full blown feature catalog before the first lamp aperture
has ever been mapped hasn't been our style in the past.
