Thank you for sensible supporting words, and for offer to contribute.
I fully support your suggestion that it would make sense for several people to co-operate on any Wiki update project. I don't know how many new web tags have been added, the topic I quoted
does not say, but MX changes are likely to continue at a rapid rate, so there will be an ongoing task!
It would make sense, particularly if such a team includes people who use the tags in MQTT, SQL, API, .json, .php, and their many other contexts outside "Cumulus templates".
You will find you now have same Wiki functionality available as I do, so you can add write access for anyone willing to take the lead, or just help out, but watch out for the constant spammers!

I suggest to make the Webtags page a dispatch page to the content which I would split in things like theory, technique, parameters, classification, programming etc... and yes of course the listing (according to that classification). Maybe even dispatch pages below the main Webtags page e.g. to split up the listings when useful/necessary. Even if somebody else would take his/her responsibility I [c/w]ould cooperate in sub projects when the dispatch page is ready.
For the time being, this original page should be kept to be accessed through the new dispatcher without the possibility to be modified. When the work is finished and everybody is used to it that page should be moved to an archive of historical pages out of the range of regular pages (so the search feature should not acces these pages to avoid confusion).
A few thoughts in response to above comments:
a) At the moment the Wiki is still supporting a large minority of people still using the legacy Cumulus, so any rewriting needs to still offer somewhere for those users.
b) The old page can be renamed and preserved as I did in this preserved page
c) Based on my long experience with Wiki, I would strongly suggest rename that old page first, then create a new page with old name, so the links to existing page within old posts in this forum continue to work. The new page with old name can have link to renamed old page and to another new page (dispatcher in your terminology).
d) Given that Web tags are now used in MQTT, SQL, API, and many other contexts outside "Cumulus templates", it might make sense on that new dispatcher page and subsequent new pages to use a new terminology "Cumulus tags"?
e) Other than that, all decisions are for future contributors!
f) I suspect people would be happy if your new dispatcher page that will gradually have further links added, and appropriate text changes as the new pages are produced, ends up similar to your page
