Underground temperatures change depending on where you are .. permafrost 
areas are below 0, deserts may be above 26 C.

Yep. After all it is how we humans asses things. As a 'general guide' 
most 'westerners' sense 21 C as a desirable temperature.. Those living 
in the tropics would like a warmer temperature, I'm thinking of Darwin, 
Australia where the daily maximum is around 32 C .. any season. The 
residents do get use to that temperature, they put jumpers on at 25 C.

I've put up the dangerously_hot/cold values .. used the word dangerously 
as that is more a description.

Not certain about 'mild' .. need more time to think about it?

II have separated out the 'associated tags' into the complimentary and 
additional types of tags ... I think that is better than lumping them 
together as it may confuse where this tag can be added, and then what 
tags can be added to this tag. Perhaps these words need to be looked at 
.. and added to the proposal page? I do think the information is usefull.
