In many cases, combobox and tokens values serve as "facet hooks". So MECE and consistency is crucial. So there are 2 ways to handle adding new values:

Centralized administrator-controlled authorization of new values

{{{field
  |General Tags
  |property=Has general tag
  |input type=tokens
  |values from category=General Tag
  |existing values only
  |delimiter=;}}}

Distributed user-tolerated spontaneous introduction of new values

{{{field
  |General Tags
  |property=Has general tag
  |input type=tokens
  |values from property=Has general tag
  |delimiter=;}}}
