   Changing any long-established tag will have long lasting ripple 
effects in the many data consumers.   Any such tag migration would need 
to have a high degree of value in the change to justify the change.

   In general, tags are just a token and are increasingly hidden by 
editors and not seen by mappers unless they prefer to create tag values
