  Situation when there are no barriers to changing widely used tags is
very dangerous.
  What would happen if somebody would see one of numerous discussions
about how highway tag is "incorrect" (as it could signify things which
are not highways) and propose a new schema with totally different
tags, and then iD goes out of fashion, somebody writes a new editor
ChakaLakaLekker, makes the "new" road/way schema the default/only one
available and in some time starts deprecating/removing highway tags.
Would that be OK? If not, why was it allowed with water?

P.S. Christophs thoughts are also right on spot, but it requires going
even further - to cartography.
