Yes: "No-one wants to create random rubbish. What people do want is to 
be able to describe what they've just mapped ..."

No: "... without needing prior approval from the OpenStreetMap Tagging 
Standardisation Committee."


All of the people I've talked to here in my area would love to see a 
tagging scheme to be able to map the stuff they see on the ground. They 
wouldn't care less where this "standard" was coming from - even if it 
would come from Mars or from the deep blue sea.
