Janko, to group a bunch of elements into a relation or add same a tag
to all these elements is not quite the same. A relation carry a meaning
(type), while with all these tags, It's seems to me just a collection
that you can find with a query :)
(Actually, we all know that both are technically feasible, no need to
fill up the history for testing ;-).
Quoting the wiki page you linked:
"Grouping relations really only make sense if the grouping is neither
geographical (as discussed above) nor exclusive ..."
Exclusive you take care of with a semicolon, why not.
For the geography, I think of this 'resorts' as a kind of geography by
itself, after all (not sure I use the term properly, pretty sure I
don't, in fact).
When I go skiing to 'Le Risoux', I don't speak about the forest
(http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/For%C3%AAt_du_Risoux), nor the mountain
(http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mont_Risoux), but rather of a bunch of
pistes, along with the 3 entry points and their cabin where people drink
tea selling you tickets, and so ...
Now, my 'rationale' :
As I go skiing here and there for mapping, I more than often go to place
I don't know yet. I check websites and forums about snow and skiing and
resorts and try to find out how I go there on low-res scanned maps. It
took me quite some icy road to find 'Le Risoux', and I first found these
pistes by the longest road. I'd like to be able to find it more easily.
When I look for 'La Seigne' in nominatim, I found 'Locality La Seigne,
Les Hôpitaux-Vieux, Doyenné du Haut-Doubs forestier, Doubs, Freie
Although geographicality close, it's not the same as the 'Resort La
Seigne, Les Hôpitaux-Vieux, Doyenné du Haut-Doubs forestier, Doubs,
Freie Grafschaft, France
I'm looking for.
Also, IMHO it would be good if we could avoid this:
