We were just discussing the amenity tag in #osm. If we are inventing a new
tag, can we avoid using amenity? Whatever a ranger station is, it is not an
"amenity" and I would like to stop the spread of this woefully overloaded
tag. It may *have* some amenities like toilets, drinking fountains or guide
maps but it is not itself an amenity.
