I think talk-transit is the place to discuss this, but a reminder to
talk-gb that we’re discussing things here and if anyone wants to comment
they should participate in the list wouldn’t go amiss.

This is an editor issue.  As we get more detailed we will get an
increasing number of tags per object anyway.  Editors might start
filtering tags for brevity (though still indicating that there are more
tags and allowing to view them).
