I have no stake in these tags, still I'd ask, 
was there anything fundamentally "wrong" with 
(my) proposals for these '-peter' and '-1918', 
and what is the merit of, say, '-shakhmat' over 

It was my understanding that all the effort of 
year and codification ID is necessary only when 
lacking some more distinct characteristic.
