[OSM-talk] Label Ontology Version 1.0

There's some guidance on the wiki about using labels but nothing very
formalised.  There seems to be some consistency in usage for common labels
(name, class) and a lot of ideas and suggestions for additional tags.

Are we at the stage yet where we should be trying to get a version
1.0ontology for labels?  If we could reach consensus on a very small
set of
labels and values then tools could start to rely on the meaning of these tag
values and begin to present a richer experience to OSM users.

What do people think. Is it too early to try to do this?
