[Tagging] Feature Proposal - Cancel - scenic

I canceled to proposal of the tag "scenic" to properly close the discussion.
Although I thought it was a truly wonderful idea I don't really seem to be
in the majority.

I had some more ideas to formulare clearer criteria - but the more I think
about them the more it became clear that I always refer to information or
tags already in the map. (like existence of separated cycleways or
'secondary roads' as a proxy for more traffic). So the new tag would seem
just redundant - and clever navigation algorithms could derive the same
information without "my" tag. And I accept that traffic density - which
would be helpful as an additional information - would not be a very reliable


The mail reference to signposts for scenic streets in some countries is
interesting - but I don't want to modify the proposal to focus on that
because I don't know these signposts from the area I live in. And the
existing use of scenic = yes already seems to cover exactly this situation.


So I want to thank Paul for technical help, everybody for the input and
hereby close the proposal.
