[Tagging] OSM is a right mess (was: Craigslist OpenStreetMap Rendering Issue)

iD shows oneway=unknown if it's not set. If it's unknown, iD should not
show oneway at all.
In OSM if oneway=no then it's not oneway and the oneway tag should not
appear at all.
The only time oneway should appear is in the case of oneway=yes - and the
'=yes' is superfluous.
OSM's k=v design is completely a serious and unnecessary flaw. Similarly
are 'categories' like man_made', and 'amenity'.
Why can we not simply stick to hard facts rather guessing what categor(ies)
an object fits in
A fountain is a fountain. It does not matter if it is
- an amenity
- man made
- natural water (???!!)
etc. Such categorization is semi-ambiguous; people think differently and
are happy to categorize differently - and more - argue over categories.
OSM is 90% argument, 5% dead-end discussions and 5% progress. The whole is
not a marketable product; it's not fit to be rated as 'beta'. Is this a
significant cause of ex-mappers ? It's a flipping brilliant project but
sadly lacking a great leader.
