 I propose something like:

We need something along those lines.  Knowing a fingerpost is there is
good, but knowing what it says on each arm and where the arm is pointing
is better.

For lack of a specific tag I've put stuff like that in the description.
than nothing and fairly easy to figure out what to put if better tagging
comes along.

While you/re there...  Some fingerposts point to public footpaths or
bridleways.  They might have words, or a symbol, or both.  It would
be useful to have a way of tagging those, especially the ones that
only have a symbol.
