You are invited to participate in the discussion on
regarding the naming of this tag.

A long RFC period was used to try and collect the maximum number of views.
A long list of candidate names was tried, among them the one with the most
UK colour: Elsan Point.
Whilst there was no perfect answer to be found, consensus settled on the
tag name chosen.
Elsan Point was the most British of the options, in keeping with OSM's
history, but as a brand name there were objectors from
elsewhere on the planet.
