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?
