I have no objection to users tagging in their local language. I also have 
no objection to those users also using tags in a language that has been 
agreed upon for use in an international context, or to others subsequently 
adding tags for other languages. Do you feel that maps for any given area 
should only be available to those fluent in the local language or languages?
