redefining, in an INCOMPATIBLE way, a tag which has been used 7,972,733

There is no magic wand that can do an automatic global edit because EACH
INDIVIDUAL USE must be checked ON THE GROUND to see if the current
value is retained under the new definition or if it must be changed.

None of those manual changes are going to happen overnight. This means that
there will be a period of time, probably YEARS, when consumers can't be
sure of
what they're getting.  Actually, it will take years for 90% changeover and
to catch it all.

At which point in that long transition should editors switch?  And when
renderers switch?  And when should routeing algorithms switch?

This proposal is MADNESS.
