--- Comment #38 from 555 <lugu...@gmail.com> ---
A Global Message Delivery to all Wikisource Scriptoriums/Village pump is higly
recommended, since this extension was firtly developed to Wikisource wikis and
latter enabled on all Wikimedia wikis [1] [2].

In the time that <poem/> tag arised on Wikisources, we have also asked for a
<prose/> tag (See bug 6810).

Unfortunately at that time the developers picked what was most easy to then
instead of what is more user intuitive (sorry, but <poem>foo</poem> and {{prose
start}}foo{{prose end}} don't makes sense to newcomers (#c6).

As you can see on [3] and [4], the formatting isn't the same currently adopted
in <poem/> tag, so the current consensus to set <poem/> as an alias for a new
tag name isn't viable.
