I came to the conclusion, that deciding if e.g. a museum better fits in 
tourism or leisure is pointless - as it is both and the decision will 
largely depend on your personal bias and the museum in question.

You may have a look at recent versions of JOSM. I have spend quite some 
time thinking about how to put these into the preset menu so that it 
makes sense.

The solution that made most sense to me (and doesn't take care too much 
about the existing tags) is:

- tourism
- culture
- leisure

Limit tourism to signposts, information bureaus and alike.

Deciding between culture and leisure is a lot easier then ...
