What are these tags? Only the three admin levels? I figured out they were
in the data (We were three people to process the data along the workflow
and seems we missed this) and actually not in what had been described in
the wikipage so I added it a few days ago in the wikipage, thinking it was
not a big deal. The key may be improved though, what do you think?
Otherwise, I also added what had been considered by us from the beginning
after discussion with UNICEF.

This issue reminds me we asked the Import WG where we should publish the
original data so that it could be available for anyone to check during the
validation process, but we did not get an answer. Is there an official
repository? Ideally, it would be one run by the OSMF, so that we are sure
the original data would be always available.

Yes. I would say it is not so frequent we are 100% because 1 some education
and health facilities, are sometimes built in traditional materials and
small, so they do not distinguish from the rest of the buildings. Large
compounds and visible well are the ones of which we are totally sure. And
sometimes for a same facility, both the school or health center and its
water point have the same coordinates (because some surveyors just took one
waypoint per facility), so it would make sense to inform the location is
not totally accurate.
