We have another "type" which is a shop that has registered with an 
authority, promising to fill people's personal bottles on request.

If that's done it must be a live import, as those records are constantly 
updated by the authority.  The nodes have to be tagged for import 
synchronization purposes:

     source=Town of Nowhere

And it is also unclear if it is practical to conflate (then later 
remove) the "free_water" attribute directly on the shop's nodes.
