[Tagging] admin_level on nodes: wiki vs practice

I really don't think this is considered a standard tag by most people.
In taginfo we can find keys like capital_city, capital_level, is_capital,
state_capital, capital.
As far as I saw, each key is concentrated on some parts of the globe.
It certainly is not a "fact" that it is standard.

I had changed the proposal status to cancelled because I thought the node
admin_centre in the administrative relations superseded the proposal for
the key capital, but it seems I was wrong.

Anyway, I added a template to the page
Key:capital<http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:capital>
.
When people agree on a definition, we should add it to this page.
