+1 if it means that the rendering of these features is done according to 
whatever is agreed. I have a particular interest in coastal and tidal 
riverbank areas. I had tagged some such areas some years ago according 
to the Wiki and the rendering was as expected. Since the introduction of 
Carto, the rendering rules between coastal and riverbank 
wetland/tidalflat sand/mud changed, causing abrupt changes in estuaries, 
where sea becomes river at some arbitrary point. Now recently, the zoom 
rules between mud and sand/beach have diverged.

In summary, I would like to see a set of tagging rules that produce 
predictable & consistent renderings in the map. I am agnostic as to 
exactly what these tags should be & will gladly change my mapping to the 
new scheme.

I will leave it to others to argue at length over what the tags should be!
