I use something similar, but don't have a start or delegated tag.
"Next" is key, in my opinion and I use it for the same reasons as
Bastien. I have lots of todos and it's nice to scan through them
during the course of a week and mark those "next" that I know need to
be done... next.

Makes it much easier to do this regularly and then work on the next
items vs. identifying something to do next and then having to re-scan
the massive todo list every time for a good thing to work on.

I use "wait" as well, though one issue I've had is forgetting about
them. Though, I put my wait after the "|", which perhaps doesn't make
sense. Seeing Bastien's list makes me want to think about rethinking
that. Or adjusting the "todo" date to reflect when I need to follow up
about why I'm waiting or with to whom I've delegated the task.
