You are obviously trying to hijack this thread because some time ago you
changed something on the wiki and someone else complained. You thought
you were doing the right thing, you got a dressing down, and you haven't
gotten over it to this day.

You are obviously of the - mistaken - opinion that if we just had a wiki
that would have clear and concise rules, everything else would
automatically follow.

In most cases you'll find that one or two ways of tagging something
cover 90 or 95 percent of cases. That's good enough for me...

I'd say this is true if you are talking about something widely accepted
like oneway=yes. But if you talk about something more complex, where
different interpretations are possible and you change tags so that
things work in *your* routing engine, then that's the wrong approach -
the tags must describe what is on the ground, and the routing engine
must be adapted to work with that.
