There are many different tagging methods in OSM. And no universal view 
as to what is best.
Unfortunately that is a failing of the 'any tags you like', it is also a 
strength in that you can immediately tag something for which there is no 
existing tag - you simply make one up.
Any tag that is 'made up' on the spot may not be a great tag, it will do 
until something better comes along.
I think any tag that is made up on the spot needs (later) to be 
discussed, improved if possible and then documented.

Welcome to the struggle of getting better tags. There are many different 
views ... pick the best for you.
