First you have not put it forward as an idea, but put it forward as a
compulsion, a dictate.
OSM has never dictated this method as compulsory.
While it is good to encourage the discussion of a tag on the tagging
list, trying to make a mapper do a proposal page is a discouragement to
enter into discussions on the tagging list - the last thing 'we' want!
If dictated it could lead to many undocumented tags remaining
undocumented as it becomes yet more difficult to document a new tag.
There then would have to be 2 wiki pages created. And if the proposal is
only in draft form there is not compulsion to mention it on the tagging
If a watch is set on making any new proposal page .. why not set a watch
on making any new wiki page at all - same effect but less work for the
person doing the documentation.
