I missed this bit ....

Just to be clear .. the voting is for the key:  temperature=

I take the thing 'we' vote on being the title and tagging descriptions 
at the top of the page .. the rest is explanation, argument and possible 
future things.

Not to vote the values that might be assigned to it. Those may need 
further individual discussion and work. There looks to be broad support 
for most of the given values. But I think it is too complex to discuss 
them all together. However 'we' are encouraged to be verbose in the 
explanation of the thing proposed.

If the proposal were for "amenity=sanitation_dump_point"

then you would be voting on the value of the key amenity being 

If the proposal were for "amenity=" you would be voting for the key " 
amenity" ...

At least that is the way I see it.

To say that a proposal for a key must have all its values in place at 
the start means any addition would mean a new vote of the entire key 
with all the previous values and the new value.. rather pointless. It 
also extends the process by allowing discussions on values that may see 
little if any use while the key and readily agreed values wait.
