To my mind the tools and infrastructure should be catering to the mappers'
needs and not the other way around, so whatever reasonable requirements
this tagging scheme may impose, the OSM platform should be able to absorb.
Not my use of the word 'reasonable' --> in the spirit of OSM any scheme
should be the simplest it can be while being able to represent the reality
it means to represent.
