While I agree with your description of attraction tag, I am not sure if
this would help. If this is tagging for rendering, you can render more
features, so cheating would not be needed (and we do it at OSM Carto),
but stopping to render it might as well make people abuse other tags.

People are not that simple, imposing something is not a sure way of
reaching some goal, it can easily backfire.

I'm not sure what are you talking about (most probably I just don't
share your point of view), but I don't remember such cases.
