I don't get the problem with k=v instead of just v. There is a function
called concatenate which solves that.

We should move away from mapping directly with tags, and to a system like
iDs, with descriptions that hide tags. For a database it's  irrelevant if
it's "oneway=yes" or "4658". All this talk about correct k=v combinations
is bikeshedding to me. Only DB admins and tag proposers should ever see
what a tag looks like.
