imho you request too many comment in one email,
the thread 'll soon become unmanageable

there is a difficulty in using osm for volatile data: should the value 
in osm be changed each time a staff member is on vacation? or should
the definition of the tag be changed to say that it describes the 
average value outside of a particular event? but in this case, if the 
amenity double its staff temporarily for an event, how will the user 
know this since the average value does not take it into account ?

for the tag itself, a more common namespace would have been
doctors:count or doctors:avg:count (or :capacity if it's about
the capacity)

amenity=toilets for a closed toilets is an exemple of bad tagging.
see 
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Talk:Proposed_features/Tag:operational_status#Shares_the_same_problems_as_the_old_styles_of_using_disused.2Fabandoned
but the tag itself is an improvement for "not fully closed" amenity.

please check the approved and 10x more used 
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:healthcare
what's new/diff in your propal ? the previous propal said 
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features/Healthcare_2.0#What_healthcare.3D.2A_is_lacking
but you are talking about taginfo usage but nearly all of them
have already a "more in used tag"
you also said "speciality medical equipment", but some of them aren't
an equipement (psychologist, dentist,...) so it's very unclear what
you want todo, just valid the tag without any value ? bad idea.
show the need that existing tag miss, not an "openbar" rational.

Regards,
Marc
