Without a common top-level key (or one that can be matched with a regex), 
it makes it hard to collect (query, etc.) all objects with award tags. 
Also, if there is something called blue_flag with a different meaning 
somewhere (like maybe handicap-accessible), you have a collision.

I suggest "award:<Award_System>=<Award>"
