Ok. Though I don't understand, I'll take your word for it and shut up :)

Ok, I'll give up. But I will just point out that, while you insist it
is "just asking for trouble", imagine a wiki page that says something
"If you're not sure whether the place should be tagged as an
amenity=restaurant, cafe or fast_food, this flowchart is provided as a
guide. However, keep in mind that these tags have been used vaguely
and subjectively for years, and may continue to be used as such into
That seems an improvement to me, but it appears I am alone. Bye.
