Now seriously, Wikipedia and OSM have much in common but are also very
different on many levels. Wikipedia have an Arbitration Committee that
exercises definite power over wikipedians, I hope OSM won't ever need
that. But I do think that OSM would need some sort of recognized
entity that would maintain an official set of keys and values. After
all the namespace we have for keys are finite.
