I agree.
I am a recent (4 months) contributor to OSM and I sometimes find it annoying 
to have multiple, sometimes incompatible, tagging used for the same 
purpose.
Sometimes I just don't tag something, not knowing an acceptable way to do 
so. So I acually concentrate on roads which have a good consensus on the 
tagging (and is the main purpose of OSM).
