[Tagging] Nominatim’s use of is_in and tag documentation

A detailed explanation of when Nominatim uses the is_in tag was recently posted to the talk mailing list [https://lists.openstreetmap.org/pipermail/talk/2016-August/076596.html]; it only does so for certain objects and only when boundaries haven’t been mapped properly.

It may therefore be possible to add advice to the wiki saying that anyone who adds this tag anywhere else is wasting their time, but as with other tags you would want to consider other data consumers.

So, is there anyone else out there who uses the tag differently and is it safe to add this information to the wiki without a health warning?
