This was a misunderstanding, my suggestion was to use lamp_type for lamp
types (in reply to your suggested light:source I was pointing out that
there is a used tag) and light_type for the kind of device (lantern in this
example).  IMHO it would not be desirable to use different keys for the
same property according to the kind of device (i.e. a lantern and a
street_lamp should have the same subtag to map the lamp type / light
source).

cheers,
Martin
