Unfortunately here the audience is more mixed than the usual, because an 
operator is involved.  For example given:

     condition:detail="Only trickle of rusty water when button pressed"
     description="Lovely cast iron fountain inscribed to 'my dearest 
     operator="Big Chain Store"
     note="This appears to be part of Moomoo park, but is actually owned 
by Big Chain Store".

     condition          --> sets map symbol on specialist maps
     condition:detail   --> for user and operator
     description        --> meant to describe the fountain not the condition
     operator           --> for sorting
     note               --> for mappers

Given those audiences, what tag names map best?
