Actually, taginfo has a new feature which shows the information about
editor support. The lists are available and machine readable.

Yet, another example where wiki needs more attention (maybe include the
editor support).

The major problem of the wiki, in my eyes, are a missing inter language
changelog to notice changes on the English version and the editing
attitude on the wiki, which leads to quite some edit wars, introducing
new tags into wrong space and thousands of useless redirects which makes
it impossible to distinguish accepted tags from proposed/unused ones.

In this way, could some wiki admin please delete all "uuid:*=*" wiki
pages, which are only redirects to the proposal pages and the tags are
deprecated plus not in use.

Thanks and cheers
