What I was asking - exactly - was which were the rules to which you
referred, explicitly, both in your question and in the subject heading
of your email.

Now that you have provided a URL, I see that they are not rules at
all, and that the page includes in its introduction the caveat:

  This page is designed to assist anyone considering putting forward a tag
   proposal, with the aim of speeding the tag proposing process. It is not
   meant as a set of absolute rules, but as a guide.

and indeed that this is, as that introduction also says, merely:

   one of multiple ways to introduce and discuss new tags for features
   and properties

I'm glad we've cleared that up.
