  If you would have created the things I've listed above (which
consume OSM data), you would understand why I'm so opposed to random
shuffling of tags without a good reason.

  Tagging in OSM is something like an "API" to data and usually
serious organisations/companies are very strict about changes in API,
and breaking changes are only done if really really really necessary.
