JOSM currently discards this tag, [https://josm.openstreetmap.de/browser/josm/trunk/src/org/openstreetmap/josm/data/osm/AbstractPrimitive.java#L736<https://josm.openstreetmap.de/browser/josm/trunk/src/org/openstreetmap/josm/data/osm/AbstractPrimitive.java#L736>], but iD doesn’t [https://github.com/openstreetmap/id-tagging-schema/blob/main/data/discarded.json].

I some many occurrences [1] of this undocumented tag
it's seem to be about the name of the tools used
to produce datas.
like created_by, I have the feeling that this tag
may be useful as a changeset tag, but should be
discardable as tag on object.
before opening tickets in some(s) editor(s),
I request your feeling about it
