I will discuss with you but I won`t vote as I think looking at the
numbers within the data and at how many different users did use the tag
tells much more than a vote for taking place for some weeks or month.

Still proposal are important and the first step to a proper documentation.
And well here we are where we have some lacks:
To document is often a painful job, especially after a long discussion,
and yourself will probably earn little.

One nice thing about OSM is its openness. We do not have/want rules for
everything but rather prefer that we all together actively develop a
tagging system. This can/will lead to some duplicities and later changes
but for me this is a fair game to first try out and use and once it gets
uses and established make it "official".

All together we need to be flexible and maybe check for a few more tags
with the advantage of freedom to choose and/or simply to try out.
