I appreciate your effort to bring more clarity in the different wiki statuses.

However, I don't think changing the status 'Approved' to 'Published'
is a good idea. In my opinion, 'approved' is exactly what it is: a
proposal approved by the OSM community.

The fact that only a small number of people vote is not relevant, as
anybody in the community can get involved in the tag selection process
if they want to.

In short, I oppose this proposal.
