I have come to the conclusion (possibly a wrong conclusion) that this list
isn't about
enforcement but about advice.  The spirit of OSM is that you CAN create any
tag you want.
However, discussing it here and then making a proposal (that is approved)
means you're
more likely to create a tag that isn't problematic in some way.
