Exactly this was discussed.

I'm sorry for inconvenience, shall we remove several countries from OSM so
you can easily use single tag you like to see? Cycleways? Motels? What tags
should we remove?

an existing and common tag.
Good luck with downloading over 230K+ instances worldwide just to see what
was mapped before in places you never visited
http://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/tags/leisure=playground. You are smart,
because I feel myself as complete retard then I see all these objects. But
you are true hero we need. Please, clarify leisure=playground for us!
Define one tags that will suite every single case mapped before for every
single application at once! Make proposal about leisure=playground
deprecation! It's easy!
