[Tagging] Loomio evaluation

OSM is a very large community with much accumulated knowledge and
skill - it's bound to be quite conservative, and for good reason. The
challenge is to allow experimental innovations to breathe without
disrupting the community. We'll never be able to organise a vote (ha!)
to switch to loomio all at once. But if we decide Loomio is worth
trying, maybe we can experimentally agree to use it to negotiate some
small tagging subproject, in a particular tag namespace. (indoor
tagging might be a good example?) Then inch by inch we see what works.
