There is also no consensus on what constitutes a valid vote. Some times
there are questionable "votes", discussing things for a short time in remote
places, avoiding discussaion and calling it a vote. On the other hand, other
people reject votes where erverything has been done right according to the
proposal scheme.

There's some fundamental mechanics that neither a vote nor just-doing-it can
- changing an existing tagging scheme will always invalidate all prior work.
Never a good idea.
- some tagging schemes are not technically feasible, e.g. main tags with
lists of multiple values
