[Tagging] owner vs operator

There are really fancy problems to discuss these days...

Since there is an operator=* tag well documented on wiki, why can't we
introduce a page for an owner=* one ?

As you maybe know, the owner of an infrastructure (public transports,
facilities network, public services, etc) and the effective operator may be
different, especially nowadays when administrations save money by allowing
private companies to operate.

Operator could be given by operator=* and the effective owner by a "new"
owner=* tag.

owner=* isn't described on wiki but already pretty well used :

I won't write a big proposal and lead to a vote for such a "simple" thing.

Just let us know how do you feel about it.
