Great, but my everlasting question remains: how do we tag a shop that's
selling several kinds of goods if In general *avoid ';' separated values
whenever possible*. Don't use them in your mapping, and don't propose
them on the wiki if there are better ways of representing things
<http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Semicolon>.
What are those "better ways" for shops? Really splitting them into
several ones?

Cheers,

André.
