Independent of what i already said in


i am always wary of tags lacking any examples for on-the-ground mapping or a practically locally verifiable definition.  And defining a tag negatively trough the lack of something (vegetation) rather than positively through something that can be positively observed is problematic.  We have had this problem with natural=desert already (which some had defined equally though the absence of vegetation).

Overall as it stands this does not seem likely to become a successful and meaningful tag.  Maybe you can show some on-the-ground examples of areas you think this tag is suitable and needed for and get input from the wider community how they would suggest to characterize and tag such areas.
