Honestly there is no conspiratory intent in what I'm talking about.

How would I pick them? Say that I want to make a proposal about how to tag "cauliflower fields": I'll try to get in touch via email with others that have already expressed their interest in something similar (/e.g. artichokes fields/) and ask if they are interested in working with me on my new fantastic idea of tagging "cauliflower fields" and/or if they know anybody else that they think could be interested.

No need for that. You can use good-old email, WhatsApp, Telegram, Signal, Slack, IRC, ... whatever.

There is no need for that interaction to go through channels directly handled by OSM

Ooops... sorry... I'm afraid I don't understand the meaning of the above. Can you please repharase?
