That would be the two major drawbacks with the current proposal:
A. No possibility to have several plug types at the same node.
B. No clear way of sharing a node with amenity=fuel.

A: The the same scheme as for "liquid" fuels could be used (i.e.
fuel:e85=yes/no, fuel:diesel=yes/no, et.cet). Something like
"charging_station:plug:VDE-AR-E-2623-2-2=yes/no" would be nice, and easy to
expand with "charging_station:battery:AAA"...

B: Data miners and alikes should be able to gather info regarding charging
facilities from a amenity=fuel if it has tags matching "charging_station:*".
The other way around would of course also be possible, if an
charging_station also offers something like fuel:e85.
