I'm trying to keep an eye on tagwatch and have added stuff to map 
features according to the usage (e.g. lot's in the shop category is 
based on tagwatch results).

Obviously I can't keep up with the dynamics of OSM ;-) So if there are 
features in wide use and not in map features, please let us know ...

Do you have examples?

Perfectly true!
