Then it was indeed a misunderstanding. I did not suggest the tag
light:source=* as a subtag, but instead suggested light_source=* as
the primary tag for light emitting objects. (A light source, a source
of light, an object from which light is being emitted.) I suggested
this because the simple light=* is already taken. So the tagging would
be rather like this:

	light_source=lantern/floodlights/... as the primary tag,

	light:*=* as subtags, such as...
		light:colour=red
		light:aperture=20
		light:direction=N

This makes it clear that the primary object is a light emitting
object, and that these subtags describe the properties of the emitted
light.

Note that ":" indicates subtags here, while "_" binds words as in
"man_made", and that there is no
man_made=some_common_value_for_all_light_emitting_objects more
involved at all.
