There is no requirement that a new tag must go through the proposal process. I documented this tag as I began using it, others may find it usefull to be more specific than 'amenity=drinking_water'. I think the status is indeterminate at this time. Warin61 (talk) 02:25, 30 March 2018 (UTC)

There is no requirement to have a proposal for a new tag to be used, but if you write documentation for a tag that isn’t established you should use the proposal template to make the status clear. FWIW, I don’t consider a more specific first level tag for drinking fountains useful, it will only make it more difficult for users to find drinking water, and there is already alternative tagging available which is used much more:
amenity=drinking_water with fountain=* and values like ‘bubbler’ or specific local types like ‘nasone’. I’d suggest you use those, and possibly add a new more specific type for the ones in your area, if needed. —Dieterdreist (talk) 13:21, 30 March 2018 (UTC)
