If there is an approved proposal that introduces tag
electricity=yes with definition
"There is electricity available, either continuously or on a set schedule, see  schedule <https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features/electricity#Schedule>."
and no explicit restriction limiting its use, then people sooner or later
will use it on nearly every single building in say Paris or Kraków despite that it provides
basically no info

natural=tree was intended for lone or significant trees, now in some places
every single tree was mapped (sometimes imported)

> Hi Mateusz,
> the proposal doesn't encourage pointless spam. I have already      said that I agree with you and will add that language into the      final wiki page, although I personally think that it is a given      that one shouldn't tag things when there is a clear default.      Abstain from the vote if you must - I asked often enough if there      were any other small fixes that need doing, but I strongly object      to the word > encouraging>  in your text. Encouraging would be      if I explicitly asked people to tag this on every public amenity,      which I don't. 
> Unfortunately I can't change the wording during the vote but this      is a truly minor change that can be done afterward. You seem to be      trying to find any reason to vote against it - it's quite tiring -      instead of focussing on the substance of the proposal.
