For the moment Martin's proposal doesn't offer anything for those cases. As
with all features, it's important to remember that we are concerned with the
primary purpose or use for a feature. Just because museums have cafes,
shops, toilets, libraries, etc. doesn't necessarily mean we should add all
of those sub-features.

As somebody with experience curating and organising art exhibitions, music
festivals and similar, I agree!

Unfortunately we are in the game of developing tagging schemas rather than
elegant essays! We must do our best to approximate some lines that make
sense across linguistic boundaries.
