This is a practical suggestion. We can actually put it into effect
today. It will take quite a few hours of wiki fiddling to swap all
mention of "approved" for "recommended" though. Is it worth doing?
I don't think it will solve the problem completely, because people will
still see it for what it is, a vote on whether a tagging idea gets to
be put on "Map Features", but the rewording might help make people see
it as more of a process of gaining community acceptance rather than just
winning a vote.
