I've noticed that some proposed features have been staying in the "before-voting" state for quite a long time. For example, this: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features/Device_Charging_Station. It is more than two years old, but vote has not been started yet. Is anything wrong with that proposal or with proposal process itself?

Simple: not enough interest (by the proposer, the community, or both). Now and then the proposals have been superseded by others, it simply hasn't been documented.

Note: if no in use tagging scheme exists for whatever you are trying to map, using something that is "just proposed" is naturally perfectly OK (infamous example: amenity=childcare).

You can always search the archive of the [tagging mailing list]https://lists.openstreetmap.org/pipermail/tagging/() to see whether the proposal was discussed there. In this case there was some discussion on charging devices and USB ports
