What would be useful is a separate discussion about what wiki "data
items" are and why there are a good (or bad) idea. That doesn't really
because that seems tied up in the specifics of one particular tag (and
lets be honest, wiki pages aren't good at threaded discussion).
Maybe someone who thinks this particular change is a good (or bad) idea
should write a diary entry or create a thread here explaining what the
point of the change is and what the benefits are, and what the impact on
people who use the wiki for reference and on people who edit it is?
There is a page https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Data_items but that
fails to communicate much of that to me (someone whose first language is
English and has been reading technical documentation for 40 years).
Until that happens the rest of us are just going to assume that the OSM
wiki is a series of pages that we can just edit to document things in
OSM to help other mappers (which presumably was the original point) and
ignore anything else.
