values in {0,1,-1} give more information than both {true,false} and
{yes,no}, so they may be worth choosing over them. Of course values in
{yes,no,reversed} would work as well, even if the "reversed" value
sounds less natural than -1 to me.

Anyway, while we are discussing this tag it may be worth to agree on
one standard, write it on the wiki, set it as the preset in all main
editors and let the alternatives fade into oblivion. To me anyone of
the three currently proposal would do, no preference.
