Now we're getting somewhere. This goes back to an idea floated a while 
ago by RichardF, and mentioned by Harry Wood in his talk at SOTM - I 
think it is called "tags I use".

The idea behind that (and correct me if I'm wrong) is that anyone makes 
their own decisions (just like now) and in cases where people think they 
have a good definition they put this on some kind of special wiki page 
or database or whatever ("tags I use, and how I use them"). Others can 
then choose to follow someone else's definitions, or not, or follow a 
mix, or create their own.

I'm ok with that kind of leadership where everyone can choose for 
himself by whom he wants to be led. I'm just not ok with A and B 
choosing a leader and C then has to follow.
