Large scale change of traffic_sign to traffic_sign:id

In the last weeks more than 25,000 traffic_sign tags in Spain got replaced by traffic_sign:id.
Example: Node History: 6355477497 | OpenStreetMap

The user doing these edits pointed me to a seven year old, never finished proposal by him:
Proposal:Extended traffic signs tagging - OpenStreetMap Wiki
Changeset: 145349201 | OpenStreetMap

Am I missing some discussion about this topic? What is your opinion about these changes. IMHO this should be reverted until a detailed discussion has taken place. In the current state these traffic signs are not accessible for any tool using the traffic_sign tag as documented in the Wiki.
