it doesn't matter with presets as they can set several tags at the same time, but I'd generally reject this argument as not relevant. Surveying a way takes a lot of time, drawing the geometry as well, opposed to this, very few seconds to add an additional tag (with autocompletion it is sth like 1-2 secs per tag) are really completely insignificant.
