That's it.
The list of tags that should be loaded is calculated as:

Tags to load =
+ builtin-tag-list
+ tags referenced in the styles
+ tags referenced in one of the hooks
- tags in the delete-tags-file

A hook is an additonal function that can add tags to the list, e.g. 
RoutingHook adds tags "access", "bicycle", "carpool" etc. if the "route" 
option is set. The SeaGeneratorHook adds the natural tag if the 
generate-sea option is set.

If a tag is in the builtin-tag-list it is loaded no matter if it is 
really used or not. The patch changes that for the tags type and maxspeed.
The patch has an effect when the --ignore-maxspeed option is set and the 
maxspeed tag is not referenced in the style. The second tag type will 
not have a big effect because its usage beside relations is quite small.
