The wiki is not in great shape (arguably in worse shape than the osm
data itself), but if less than perfect data was a blocker, OSM would
never have goten off the ground. The wiki is the 2nd most important
source of OSM docs, after all the in-editor stuff. It should be well
cared for.

Tools to cross-check the wiki against taginfo, presets, validators,
etc would be great. Discrepancies would need to be checked manually,
as no source is authoritative. It'd be great to have more
machine-parseable data in the wiki, for example if a tag is sensitive
to way direction or if it expects other tags to be present.
