The statement I disagree with is that "We shouldn’t be in a situation where there is no approved way to map a mapable feature just because the community doesn’t agree completely on how to map it."
Nobody needs approval to map anything in OSM, so approval only really matters when there is a conflict, and I agree that conflicts are better resolved by discussion and consensus (with confirmation by the yes/no vote) than by voting between competing options. If a stalled discussion means that multiple tags coexist, that's ok by me - clearly the stakes weren't high enough in that case for compromise to achieve coherence to be valued over the "right" tag...
