Proposal to enable wiki for place=subdistrict

Proposal:

place=subdistrict is a subdivision of a district used for administrative or other purposes.

See Subdistrict on Wikipedia for more details.

Context:

Thailand’s administrative divisions include provinces, districts, and subdistricts.

In OpenStreetMap (OSM), we have place=province and place=district, but there’s currently no place=subdistrict tag.

Normally, I’d consider reusing an existing place value like place=county, but I noticed that place=state, which is equivalent to place=province, already exists.

Additionally, I found that addr:subdistrict is already in use for addresses.

Is there a specific reason why place=subdistrict hasn’t been documented yet, apart from the fact that subdistricts haven’t been mapped extensively yet?
