Not a bad idea. It gives people time to work on an article and doesn't get
the immediate hit your article is being AFDed, but is there some safeguard
in place against people removing the tag?
If someone removes an AFD tag, you still have the central listing. What
happens if they remove a prod tag? Do I have to watchlist it and hope it is
the last edit on the article if I check it?
From the proposal page, it seems that removing the tag
is the method
for contesting deletion. The remover is advised to improve the
article, to tag it for cleanup or similar, or to send it to AfD, but
these are all suggestions.
Much of it would seem to depend on the person who first addresses the
tag, and on which of these courses of action they choose. Hopefully
people will choose wisely!
