Jonathan Haas now phrased much better what I was trying to express and noticed a bit wider 

"I feel it is not well defined what electricity=yes actually means. Does it mean the building
has electricity, or the electricity is available to a visitor/guest? Or putting it another way,
what is the implied value of electricity:access=* if it isn't present? If it just means that the
building has electricity, tagging electricity=yes is useless in most developed countries, as
that should be implied. If it means the electricity is available to guests 
(like in the café/campsite example), that means the tagging doesn't make sense for

> 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.
