Yes, one of main points of StreetComplete is to allow editing without
knowing how objects are tagged, similarly iD.

It means that to count "how many people decided to use tag XYZ"
all iD users and all StreetComplete users count as say 4 people
because not each mapper is deciding on its own but it is 
decision of whoever makes the software.

> In absolute yes but be carefull: Some editors (like StreetComplete since some weeks or iD) might push one or the other schema without the user knowing which one is used in the background and sometimes without rationale why this one and not the other one on editor side (they implement ONE, they do not offer the choice to the user). And I suspect many of those data came from an editor input field vs a user which have typed the key and the value.
