> 1. Multiple tags meaning the same is not a problem for software developers

please share how you deal with it
I encounter this kind of inconsistency every week

please share also how you avoid the issue when a average mapper edit
an objet with software, when the preset have a tag A and the objet have
the tag B with the same meaning, but the user don't see it in the preset
due to " Multiple tags meaning the same".
every day there are contributors who add a postal code to an POI because
the information is stored in another tag, otherwise (postal_code on the
commune relationship or on a postal_code relationship)
