What I have learned from the thread.

Do not use the word bath/bathe as it has confusing double meanings. Maybe bath
could be used for some speciality markings later on.

The use of the key "sport:" could mean trouble if it isn´t a place where the
sport should be exercised for competition or closely connected to that.

I will start a new thread with another suggestion.
