The current state is documented there, yes.

But I think here and not there is the right place to discuss my new suggestions (diplomatic:sending_country=<cc> etc.). And amenity=embassy just way to specific, nobody wants amenity=consulate_general, ameninty=consulate etc.

On http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:diplomatic is written: „Do not use diplomatic=* without amenity=embassy since it is not independently recognised by renderers.“ – that is true for now and I want to get rid of this.
