With tag such as information=street_plaque some people WILL use it
for all street plaques, like it happened with natural=tree

If you want to restrict to only some then a better tag name is needed.

They are not a memorial in themselves, but just additional information about the biography of the person named in the street. In fact, if we consider that a memorial, then all streets with the name of a person would all be a memorial, wouldn't they?
