Excellent, much better than my idea of tags

This would bring me to the visualisation done by Chris Harrison on visualising wikipedia




is there any value in something like this for increasing the quality of our wiki/documentation

If we had a map which shows which tags have been accepted, which are proposed and not voted on, which are proposed and abandoned, which set of tags are confusing or need to be rethought. I am definitely thinking of a map and not a series of graphs, I would need to be able to zoom in on a proposal that has not be acted on for a year so that I could deleted it,
