I encourage you to make a proposal if you want.
in reality the problem #1 is that some members of the community are very
cautious when there is a 1:1 change proposal to replace a bad
"not-low-usage" key with a new better key, including those who have
never filled one of this object in osm nor used the data about this
Maybe your proposal will pass sucess due it is changing one key
with several others.
the problem of existing applications (there are only 4 reported on
taginfo) is not a problem. it is possible to ask it to support the 2
keys for 1 month and to make a mass edition in the middle of the month.
but here again the problem is the timidity of some members
the small question that remains, should the key be called
baby_changing_table or changing_table? some people talked
about adult tables (I have a little trouble imagining an adult
on a table). that could avoid confusion
