Is it time for another controversial decisions page then?

for things like pharmacies or hospitals this is only true as long as iD also adds the tags that carto supports along the “non-standard” tags, or their users will complain about things not showing up on “the map”.

Or until carto gives in to iD (on the basis of numerical usage).  So it looks like
dual-tagging is going to become the norm any time iD comes up with an
alternative way of tagging something.

Carto and iD, they’re both very important for the actual tagging that people use.

Yep.  Anything decided here (on those rare occasions we manage to agree)
can be overridden by carto and/or iD.  It seems that, at best, we're filtering
out bad ideas before they get to carto/iD.  When I'm feeling particularly cynical,
I wonder if we're serving any useful purpose.
