Here is one.
I'm rather surprised by this remark.
I agree that a proposal which is what other persons "signed" must not be
changed.
But there are so many undiscussed changes to the wiki*_s_* (even
unnotified ones, do you remember that noexit=yes story battle? I'm
keeping the most stupid of it yet to be told) that I would praise, not
blame, Yuri for his general way of doing.
I would suggest to leave the proposal alone, except for mentioning the
following, to create a final wiki page and to ask the consent of this
list for minor modifications, especially correcting typos.

And here is one correction, with wider justification...

If I had voted (I didn't have the occasion, sorry), I would have put as
a yes voting condition to change
"Give a way to distinguish the different types of sinkholes" with "...
of natural=sinkhole
<https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:natural%3Dsinkhole><https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:natural%3Dsinkhole>
(read that article)".

The reason is

  * that foreigners non-English speakers (everyone is a foreigner to
    most of the world) are liable to ignore what is a sinkhole is, and
    that it would be a shame to spoil its unusually great description in
    natural=sinkhole
    <https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:natural%3Dsinkhole> to tell
    them
  * that one could believe that sinkhole=*
    <https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features/sinkhole> can
    go without natural=sinkhole
    <https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:natural%3Dsinkhole>.
    OK, it's explained below but...
  * that I suppose that many a one quickly read as far as they think
    they have understood and that any means to make them feel that there
    is more to it is welcome
  * that too many wiki articles use insufficient definitions (e.g.
    source=survey has improved but would need a link to the explanation
    inside) and
  * the net result of that is many mapping mistakes (such as the totally
    useless bicycle=yes)
  * the most regrettable result is GPS mistakes because routing logic
    obeys exactly what it's told

Cheers

André.
