In my opinion this is the key problem - it's more of a social and
structural issue than technical one and I bet no word play will fix it.
OSM needs a general project structure rethinking and reorganizing,
including (but not limited to!) the role the Wiki plays in it. I'm
pretty sure that mappers won't get it more casual just because there's a
different wording. They are just lost with too many different tags and
sub-tagging schemes which are not coherent and universal enough anymore,
so they rely on the Wiki as a "phone book" (case-by-case) type of
We need more hierarchical/cascading tagging schemes - not only more
detailed, as we do now - on a general level (like areas tagging
redesign). I also envision moving from high-level primitives (like
"school") to "bricks" concept (like "education+children"), which would
make system easier to navigate, extend and remember without that much
help of Wiki cases.
