I agree that a basic definition of a key/value should be in OSM. But some want more information, and wikipedia is one place they seek that information from.

An example of what I have;

tag: produce=timber description: Trees harvested for*timber <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timber>*, called 'lumber' in north America. Further processing results in sawn wood, wood chips, paper.

only timber has a wikipedia link here .. and that link is redirected by wikipedia to lumber ...

  I do not want to define timber here.. it is the harvesting of the trees and the direction of the produce that is important here, not the end product.
