we do have an established numbered scheme for admin_levels, it could be

I'm not entirely happy with admin_level.  It's numbers, so you have to read
the wiki to figure out
what admin_level=4 is.  I view it as a historical accident that we should
avoid repeating, not a
template for good taq design.

The kind of protection could be readable words, like nature, or birds, or
> culture, or water, air etc.

A lot better than numbers.  Still has problems, such as some objects will
need to have a list
of values because it serves multiple purposes, but better than
randomly-assigned numbers.
