used very few times (ca. 300). Also alternatives I have checked are used
very few times (e.g. amenity=baby_change 2 times).

Do we really need a different tag here? Or would it be OK to asume from the
wheelchair tags that strollers are OK as well? Are there different
technical requirements for accessibility by wheelchairs and strollers?  Or
is this about legally different situations?

*** According to Taginfo, those tags are to feed domestic animals.

maybe "breast_feeding"? I have never needed a tag like this, basically you
can do it everywhere where there isn't too much noise / movement ;-), but
this might be perceived differently in different cultures.

** Maybe "nursery=*"?
*** But this definition is conflict with childcare 2.0 definition.
** possible values are [yes|no]. or others?

I wouldn't use "nursery" as this seems to refer to something else (a place
to bring your baby so they care for it).
