[Tagging] Missing access value (access=license / authorization?)

Here we go again.

I have used access=permit in several instances. I'm clear on what it means
and the differences between the various access tags. I'm using the tag and
unless someone shows me a good reason why such tagging is proven incorrect
in some way, I'll continue to use it.

I'm betting this thread will end up like the others, mired in differing
opinions with no consensus possible.

There you go. I agree fully. You are never going to find consensus on this
list so go ahead and use the tags.
