Any thoughts about this ?

Should we consider the dispusted=yes tag on boundary ways as a /de 
facto/ standard and uniformize a few borders ? Should we create a 
proposal about this tag ?
The borders data do not fit the doc and the statement from the 
Foundation and are not really usable right now...
