Good point about not overloading the amenity key. I will change
amenity=amusement_arcade into leisure=amusement_arcade in the

If the community supports moving casino into the leisure key, I will
also adapt the proposal to encompass that change. However, we should
take into account that this breaks support for existing editors and
data consumers. There is currently no support for either
amenity=casino or leisure=casino in the standard rendering, JOSM, iD,
or Potlatch. Are there any other large editors or data users that
should be consulted on whether they would support the move? And what
is the opinion of other users about moving casino into the leisure tag
