Right now there are 105 documented tags with the key "man_made:", and only
50 of these are listed on Map Features and Key:man_made. (See the number
next to "documented values" on

There are  261 documented amenity=* values (with a wiki page):

The Map Features page is already quite long and unwieldy, so it is
reasonable to limit how many more tags are added. Generally these tags
should have community consensus, demonstrated by being used widely in a
number of different places, and hopefully there isn't another identical or
similar tag.
