if you want to make changes to the proposal you can still do it, from my understanding, this would stop the current voting, and there would be a new voting on the modified proposal.

The new voting period would again have to be min. 2 weeks, voting isn’t so much about democracy anyway (it is hardly representative and it is not binding), it is for discovering potential problems, and testing the acceptability. In the end what really counts is whether the tags are actually applied, and whether the tagged objects correspond to the definition.

I believe the french scheme is a good idea, because it removes the ambiguity for people who know the local system (it is what seems most helpful to local data users), but it should be accompanied by an international classification.

Cheers, Martin
