To be clear, I propose to consider both

website=www.openstreetmap.org/ <http://www.openstreetmap.org/>
to be equally valid. I am not requesting to switch this.

should link to what Osmose currently considers as erorrs
worth spending human time on them
(based on that OSM Wiki request)

> Right now > https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:website>  has:
> "include the scheme (http or https) explicitly. > https://www.openstreetmap.org/> , 
> not > www.openstreetmap.org/ <http://www.openstreetmap.org/>> "
> Why this is supposed to be substantially better?
> Why not simply use website=> www.openstreetmap.org <http://www.openstreetmap.org>>  for http/https?
> Current documentation results in some validators complaining
> about all website tags without http or https - and adding this
> prefixes is massive and pointless waste of time.
> See for example > https://github.com/osm-fr/osmose-backend/issues/1115
> I propose to remove this sentence as not useful and encouraging busywork.
