I've seen some tagging that is questionalble too. Generally I leave it 
alone .. enough to do without thinking things too closely.

I think where it is saftey related then putting in the name things like 
"hidden rocks" (on a 4WD road) is ok. I've not considered 'closed', 
'dissused' etc.

For chain stores I've been adding the suburb to the name - eg 'Coles 
Epping', 'Subway Epping' ...  that may not be right .. I'll have to 
look. It would be good to be consistant.
