You have already changed amenity=ambulance_station to 
emergency=ambulance_station, which was not listed above, so you have 
already started to make these worldwide changes.

These changes are at least subject to the Automated Edits guidelines on 
the wiki. (Yes I know you are not a bot ...)

Some people may agree with these changes, they may even be a good idea, 
but deciding and changing in a few hours is a very bad idea and likely 
to start a flame war (something you, John, constantly seem to relish) 
and possibly an edit war.

Please engage brain before touching keyboard.

Cheers, Chris
