A special economic zone (SEZ) is an area in which the business and trade
laws are different from the rest of the country.  Only a small number of
these areas are mapped so far, however, estimates put the total number of
SEZ worldwide at between 2,700 and 10,000.  The proposed tagging for these
areas is boundary=special_economic_zone, which has minor existing usage.

In addition, it is proposed to deprecate the tag protect_class=23, which
has near-zero usage, in favor of this named tag.

The proposal can be found here:


I look forward to your comments and discussion.
