Just starting to use a new tag that very easily can get confused with an existing one implies a high risk of getting "corrected".  Situation nowadays is: The standard to indicate a POI reference on the internet where people can consult further information is "Webpage", no discussion about that. People, myself included, haven't thought about the definition of what a webpage vs website is.
