I don't believe the OSM community should allow the maintainer of their
default editor to introduce new tags unilaterally. I agree you must not
support all tags, not even those with significant usage, but you must not
introduce new tags. This is not the first time, and you have stated more
than once your idea of tag creation and endorsement is top down, with the
software maintainer deciding the tags on the input side, sweeping away the
confusing plurality of comunity created tags.

There is no reason you shouldn't properly document the changes in tagging
recommendation in the wiki via a proposal like all other mappers and
developers do. You won't be able to argue that it takes less time or is
more efficient to discuss this on the tagging mailing list.
