Yes, of course, what was I thinking! Centre of the Universe searches come up beautifully: "restaurants near Otley", "cafes near Otley".
Perhaps I meant "as they become even more sophisticated" - "eating places" as a group, "indian restaurants", maps with multiple POI markers and pop-ups showing the sub-tags, that sort of thing. But I am sure you are thinking or working on that already. Detailed tagging contributions will become more valuable.
