When choosing to use a tag I want to look at the tag alone. I chose it 
based on its suitability for my situation.  I don't look at who proposed 
it, who voted for/against and the variations. I look at the tag.

Past historic discussions that probably have no bearing on my situation 
simply confuse, I want to make a quick simple decision based on the  
present tag and my situation.

An proposer is bound to find one other person to make the tag 'valid' 
under this idea. I think that is a bad idea ... may become divided into 
groups that promote each others tags?
