Why not? I don't see why the given list would be complete even for outdoor 
...so mappers should use new values when needed rather than waiting them 
to magically appear on the playground=* wiki page.

However, I think it was bad decision to have it tagged as 
playground=swing/etc instead of playground:swing/etc=yes (similar to 
recycling:*=yes tagging system). That would have allowed better inclusion 
of multiple equipment to the same object (e.g. climbingframe+slide is 
rather typical combo) and use of it for the whole playground object (area 
or node) instead of placing each equipment to the physical position.
