    Be as pedantic as you please. I'll be happy to tag a cenotaph or
    three if a consensus ever emerges.

just use any tag you feel appropriate. If there will ever be a consensus that tomb=cenotaph is a bad tag and a better tag is chosen, you can easily change your objects. If you don't tag it, nobody can find it ;-) You can (also additionally) add a memorial:type=cenotaph.

Tomb = a place with something (remains/body/ashes etc)
Cenotaph = a place without that something (remains/body/ashes etc)

If tomb=cenotaph then money in your bank account = no money in your bank account? You can send it to me. :)

I would think most cenotaphs are in commemoration of WW1 & WW2 ... and as such are specifically mentioned in the OSM wiki for historic=memorial as "usually remembering special persons, peoples lost their lives in the wars. "

I have just gone through the LPI cenotaphs (valid&legal OSM data) and added those not in the data base as historic=memorial with description=cenotaph ... in this way I avoided invention yet another tag. You can add the description tag to anything .. even a tomb. I have also add the description tag to some cenotaphs I know that are not in the LPI data base (but in the OSM data base .. I added them some time ago). I know there are a lot more around .. used infrequently .. 11 November and ANZAC day spring to mind.
