Not formally, but certainly when deciding which presets to use in Potlatch
I'll look at the other editor presets; at tools like OSMdoc and Tagwatch;
and at the Mapnik stylesheet. IME the editors and Mapnik tend to share a
fairly common core of tags whereas the wiki can be a bit "out there".
Someone came up with a useful comparison chart recently but, haha, it's on
our embarrassment of a wiki so forget any chances of finding that again.

I will confess to being very disappointed that JOSM has now adopted the
retarded why-use-one-tag-when-eighty-three-will-do cycleway scheme.

I like your optimism. But people do genuinely appear to enjoy wiki-fiddling,
too. Sadly.
