I am working on a project that will eventually result in import of 
various drinking water sources into osm.  To prepare I am sorting out 
tags, and am writing to solicit feedback:

Many drinking fountains will only have the tag amenity=drinking_water, 
but the goal is to allow deeper dating mining where local enthusiasm exists.

Would you comment on the tagging proposal to help refine it?

NB: Various groups are fairly serious about drinking water points (e.g.
