that should be only in a very little cases, do you know any? Anyway, it
is possible to happen, yes, but if we start to introduce complete
tagging schemes for all the mini-minor-might-be-existing cases we soon
will have much more chaos in our data.

I agree, that the semicolon wasn't the best solution for diverting
multiple values, but it happened to be so.

consumers (better: developers) should be the ones who use the data
correctly, especially in such easy cases. We should not motivate them to
work sloddy and its even easier to identify bad data than missing data.

it is not really established. It was added to the wiki by bad reasons,
it is not used by people who are not trained by iD to do so. It is just
a fragment of imports that seems to use this method to show "ok, heres
another name, I make a bad tagging to force you change it" not a good
reason for having this in the Wiki
