Some time has passed but nothing has been changed on the Wiki.
So about amenity=shelter + shelter_type=field_shelter + (if necessary)
access=private, should I create a proposal page and vote it to change [1]
and [2] or should I simply update these pages according to what we discussed

Makes sense. So we're back to amenity.

Something like amenity=shelter + shelter_type=field_shelter + (if
necessary) access=private should cover it.
