That is one way.
It is not compulsory to do that.
You can simply start to use the tag AND document its use.
The problem with tags that have some use but no documentation is that no 
one really knows what was intended. e.g. landuse=clearing.
I have tried to contact the people that used this tag -- no response.

Things like the key shop have been introduced without going through a 
proposal process.
If you don't want to go through the proposal process .. then don't.
