In contrast to that, it is my believe that it would make mapping more

A consistent, easy-to-use set of tags would spare mappers from spending time
trying to figure out how to do something that has been figured out many
times before or which contradictive information to follow.

Instead mappers would be free to simply do what they enjoy - mapping.
