[Tagging] Feature Proposal - Voting - (key:branch)

I would suggest to add a few well known examples to the page to make it 
more clear what it's about at first glance.
Currently these are on the talk page, but IMHO they should be on the 
wiki page itself, too.

And: I would like to see a distinction between branch and the adress. 
Sometimes branches have dedicated names, sometimes they have numbers - 
here the branch is a useful tag; but often branches are only identified 
by address, and there I'm not sure if/why we should use a dedicated key 
as "the Mc Donalds at Main Street" might be enough.
