Okay, I'll do so.

It is common to post this proposal to this list and not to talk@ and 
such, right?

I don't really like discussion on the wiki, so I'll quote and answer here

A lot of the values have not been added by me and I see this problem, 
too, but did you read the distinction on the proposal page? It goes like

A place producing or processing customised goods. To differentiate 
between trade, service and craft. This proposal wants to reserve shop=* 
for trade (focused on selling pre produced goods) and creates craft=* 
for small production on demand and by order. Unlike man_made=works the 
goods are often customized to the customers' needs and specially 
produced for them.

So, the bike shop is not producing bikes, so it's shop=bicycle with eg. 
service=repair. but service=* is yet another proposal..
