Not really the kindest idea for those who try to bring reusable tags
worldwide ;)

I'm ok to say all things aren't the same in each country. That's why wiki
and data should adapt in each translation/location.

According to you, we'd better split OSM in several projects, one for each
country and data consumers will do the rest.
That's not the same deal.
In my mind, OSM can't be break apart of its data reference if we want
consumers find our data useful. If you split the reference, you should
split the whole project.
