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
What are those "better ways" for shops? Really splitting them into
several ones?
