the issue is typically not a "completely" different way, but a "slightly"
different way.

I'm also doing it like this, when I start using a new tag. Actually I am
using the draft state as long as I think I'd maybe want to change or refine
the definition, and I set it to "proposed" when I think I won't have to
change the definition. IMHO this is important for others to know when they
think about using the same tag, to communicate how settled the definition
is, and how likely it will still be changed.
