only after it has become generally established :)

while none of these conditions are maybe absolute hard requirements, IMHO most of them should be fulfilled:

- is used in significant numbers by many different people 
- has presets in different applications 
- is used by at least one “important” data user (e.g. OpenStreetMap carto, routing service, osmand, etc.)
- is used on several continents and not just in a limited geographic area (otherwise it shouldn’t appear on the global map features list)
- has a definition and it is (largely ) undisputed
