This discussion is best for talk at openstreetmap.org or for
help.osm.org, but I'll bite.

This is what the wiki would suggest, what the JOSM presets say, and
what the renderer will accept.

The tags are explicit values, so you cannot replace them with
capitalized versions, or ignore the underscores if you want the tools
to understand what you've done.

In addition to above, though, you may want to consider that Subway is
a chain restaurant, so you may want to consider

brand=Subway instead of name=Subway
