Firstly, not all hospitals are emergency hospitals, so I think that is a 
bad idea.

Secondly John, you seem to have unilaterally decided to make this 
change, and actually implemented some of it in the course of an 
afternoon. Where did you get the mandate to change all the tags by all 
of the mappers who have entered these nodes etc?

Discussing this for a day on the Tagging list is not enough for you to 
make this change.

Cheers, Chris
