I have corrected some typo's last week
I was pleased you used namespaces. That good.

I want to make a suggestion to configure this a little different.

    * scuba_diving:filling=air;nitrox32;nitrox36;trimix;oxygen

In that way to are prepared to future developments and also you don't have 
to create extra sub tags.

Also like this:

    * scuba_diving:services=repair;cources

I hope you can use it.

Subject: [Tagging] Feature Proposal - RFC - Scuba diving (Shop or spot)

Hi everybody,
I'm a scuba diver and when i goes somewhere to dive, i map the place in osm.
Previously, i've checked the wiki and saw the tag sport=diving [1], so i use 
But later, i discovered the other, but still in "proposed" state, tag
: sport=scuba_diving [2].
When i compare the tags for sport=diving [3] and sport=scuba_diving
[4], scuba_diving is far more used
(~59 vs ~2200)
I've also discovered another tagging schem/guide  for scuba in Switzerland 

But it seems that we haven't anything "official" and spread...(
sport=scuba_diving is stuck in the process and look a bit messy)

So i've made another proposition :

It basically take ideas from the differents schemes, trying to reuse
existing tags and use what's currently in the db.

If the process is accepted i'll try to reach creators of sport=diving
to propose to change theres features to the new scheme....

Please add your comments here or on the talk page if you have one...
