The tag proposed:name=* is used for proposed / future name(s) for an element.

The element itself might be proposed or under construction. When a current name for the element exists, i.e. it is proposed to be renamed, the tag should typically be combined with name=*.

The tagging follows the lifecycle scheme, using the prefix proposed:. This indicates that the status of the name will change in future.


The general rules as for name=* apply.

This lifecycle tagging is different from our established tagging of previous names with old_name=*, which is a historic fact that does not change anymore.
