It is not "rather than", but "as well as". The harbour object is tagged 
with a list of *available* facilities, the tag values being free text to 
qualify those availabilities. e.g. "harbour:toilets" could take the 
value "private, access by code". The actual location of these facilities 
are mapped separately, with appropriate tags, either from the "amenity" 
series or from the "seamark:small_craft_facility" series.

The reason for this arrangement is that querying a harbour object will 
bring up a list similar to those found in marina directories, nautical 
almanacs, etc.

Anyway, this thread is about the import, not the tagging! I know that we 
all love to argue about tags, but this is best done in the tagging list.
