Your best bet is a proposal on wiki:
You want things like this to have global reach, so it would be a
mistake to stay parochial on it, unless the feature really is one that
only exists in Ireland (like maxspeed=60, legal_limit=yes,
> natural = spring
> historic = monument
> amenity = holy well
No, don't put a space in the value. It's legal, just not done.
> religion = christian
> denomination = Roman Catholic
No, on two counts - firstly, lowercase letters are preferred as an aid
to memory (OSM is case-sensitive), secondly because 'catholic' is the
standard way to designate RC (even it it's technically ambiguous).
But you've absolutely got the right idea.
