They are amenities that stay for long time like post offices. And
amenities that are changing very fast like shops and restaurants. I
think OSM should concentrate on the first. OSM is not a google-like
bot scanning the web to build automatically a yellow-page db.
Surveying things like commercial streets are inevitably outdated
quickly. I would say that "amenities" that cannot be found in
wikipedia should be considered as commercial advertising.
