Ah, the edit war on the wiki is back.

"ridiculous tag", I agree. But I see a long list of other ridiculous
tags in the db and in the wiki. Do you need examples ?

and silently used by others.

The problem here is that Chriscf just wants to avoid that this tag is
used by others and never proposed some alternative solutions. And if
you look carefully in his wiki contributions, he did a lot of "undo"
in other parts, not only about "smoothness". I'm not pro or con the
"smoothness" key but definitely against this attitude which would
result in a ban in other wiki projects much earlier that in OSM.

I tried last month to re-open the dialogue, and some of them accepted
to re-discuss and argue the proposal but nothing came from him
excepted "it's ridiculous".
