Storage capacity isn't really relevant, because at some point the keys

This isn't just a wiki issue, the wiki just exemplifies the problem.

Any meaning amenity had, is quickly becoming lost in the noise, in
fact most things in that name space don't even come close to any
dictionary definition that I could find on 'amenity':


1. an agreeable way or manner; courtesy; civility: the graceful
amenities of society.
2. any feature that provides comfort, convenience, or pleasure: The
house has a swimming pool, two fireplaces, and other amenities.
3. the quality of being pleasing or agreeable in situation, prospect,
disposition, etc.; pleasantness: the amenity of the Caribbean climate.
4. amenities, lavatory; bathroom: used as a euphemism.

How does that describe hospital or schools or .... ?
