OK, so I wasn't invloved in creating this proposal, but as a part of Polish
community I want to add few words about this.
The idea was to reflect, the best we can, situation with graves. I think
most of us agree, that we should separate information about grave itself
(type, material, address) and people inside - we also don't add eg. birth
date to monuments of famous people. So what choice do we have?
We can add standard tags to grave node (but as I said, it rather should be
avoided), but things are going nasty, when we have 5 people in one grave.
Tags semicolon-separated? Pure nightmare to edit and easy to break it, when
we want to add more than just peoples' names.
A lot of people mentioned Wikidata. Do you know the rules of Wikidata?
There are notability rules, so it's simply not possible to store
information about every person there.
Here you have real example, grave with three people:

I will be more than happy to find better solution to map graves like this
not using relations.
Comments, that this is 'crazy' is actually not really nice...
