Err .. proposals can be for anything, including sub tags. There should

Something? If that something is poor then is is not an accomplishment.

The value of 'first_aid' could be applied to a 'first aid room' ... 

Most kits are portable, many of them are designed to be portable. are 
these included? No information on the OSMwiki page.

73 is not a status of  'in use' !!!!
