from what I recall, while many tags were already used but not really documented, in 2008/09 people would either set up a tag page for tags that were already used(not only by themselves), or write a proposal, or if they set up new pages for tags that weren’t used the other mappers would complain and call it wiki fiddling (also for those who unilaterally changed tag definitions) if it was in the tag definition space and not in their user space.

‘document your tags’ was not intended as setting up a “tag page” for tags that were neither discussed nor proposed nor in significant use.
