I'd suggest that if you vote no, it will be helpful for the community if
you could elaborate on why you're voting no, without enforcing a reason as
mandatory. Is it because this feature shouldn't be mapped, is it because
there is an alternative tag. So if the vote fails all this feedback can be
taken onboard for a revisal of the proposal and second round of voting.
