You're remembering my discussions months ago about voting for tags to 
get a good consistent tagging scheme?

You're also remembering some very prominent persons in this project 
mentioned that voting is nuts and we should see what is really mapped 
out there?

Well, I'm now exactly doing this.

Please tell the prominent persons in this project that the mappers out 
there are not able to find a consistent tagging scheme - (BTW: exactly 
what I was predicting).

You can start a vote on changing anything - or whatever seems 
appropriate to change the current situation. In fact I also think that 
doctors is a bit insane here.

But actually I no longer really take care about discussing a consistent 
tagging scheme ...
