you want to move a bit away from the anarchy but don't agree this  
discussion should be in the list where it belongs?
how do you expect anything will change?

for the topic itself there isn't much to add. It is well written and  
for my impression a majority of mappers is doing exactly this already  
for a long time.
The documentation part could need a rework. So if you have energy left  
put all this on the wiki into the best practices pages, crosslink  
wherever it makes sense ...
discussing on talk is useless as the last months have shown. many  
complaints about the current status but no action. Only once for the  
highway thread someone stood up, changed the wiki and got it voted.
Sure voting isn't a good solution but it's the best we have for new  
tags. old tags speak for themselves in tagwatch.
Having good docu in the wiki helps everyone and beginners will always  
start from there.
