We generally *try* and make our data human-readable. If archaeologists
dig up an old planet file in 1000 years, then finding a tag
boundary=aboriginal_lands is more useful to them than protect_class=24.

Of course it's a far-fetched image but I find it helps making the right

And yes, there are established things in OSM that would puzzle those
archaeolologists, like sac_scale or tracktype. Or maybe how to read a
PBF file. But we can't do all of their job for them ;)
