Thanks Martin, for your clarification.
What I missed, and we have to make this 100% clear, that this is an
exceptional tag, which signals a missing information that you cannot solve
and that needs to be put right by someone typically on the ground.
But if it's something not frequent, why not use fixme instead of creating a
new tag.
