Honestly, this "approved" v. something else is a storm in a tea cup.
The proposals have been (or not) approved. Yes, by a small minority of
OSM mappers but ones who have thought about the proposal and they are
not in any way an exclusive group.

It does not say compulsory, required or anything prescriptive, it just
says the proposal has been "approved" and it has.

Lets leave it there.
