I’ve been following the talk and tagging lists for a couple of years now and don’t think I’ve seen consensus on anything.

My take is to toss an idea/problem into the list and see if there is anything that comes back in the first few days that alters your opinion on how to tag. Sometimes there are good suggestions that can improve your thinking on how something should be tagged so it is worth submitting. Just be prepared to read and delete a myriad of email that is basically bike shedding by people who seem to have never been out of their cultural home area.

Then just go for it and tag things. Better if you document your tagging, at least as a proposal.

I haven’t bother to check, but if there is a world wide distribution of people who have decided that access=permit makes sense then I agree that it a good thing to document it on the wiki.
