It depends, as others have already pointed out on this thread.  The wiki
pages for some
keys, such as shop=* have a special value "user defined" which is "All
commonly used
values according to Taginfo."  For those, it is implicit that values can be
added without
discussion, if they meet certain criteria.  As ever, it ends up as "use

I'd also point out that at least one editor populates some of its
drop-downs from Wiki
pages (more recently it uses the Wikidata in some cases).  This may be a
factor in
your considerations.
