The definition of a primary tag here is a tag that gives a feature a
meaning by itself. If you have a node or way with the only tag
being 'ref=42' for example that is meaningless and therefore 'ref=*' is
not a primary tag.
But you don't actually need this distinction for the rules i sketched -
you could also simply say:
* inventing new tag *combinations* is fine as long as the individual
tags are used in a sense that matches their pre-existing use.
