I disagree with this. The wiki is guidance for what is considered, 
especially for newbies, to be the correct way to tag. I confess this is 
subjective & open to (very long ) discussions, but to believe a tag is 
correct just because it's in the majority is incorrect.

As an example I give water=river/canal/stream which is now preferred 
over waterway=riverbank, even though there are fewer occurrences at this 
point in time.
