This has been bugging me too.
Auto-complete sounds like the best option. If there are multiple options (e.g. if you start typing "p" for amenity) then it should default to the last used value (e.g. you type "p" and it starts to auto-complete "post_box", but then you type "a" and it switches to thinking you want "parking", and so on). It should also store values you type in that aren't in the list, since those lists are quite limited.
