I found a few of those. A travel agency adds a node to the destination, not
where their office is.

I agree, I try to fix those that I find. It's hard to make a tool that a
user on his first and last try will get. We have to try though.

I was hoping for a general tag that would indicate that something is more
online than offline. But I guess that kind of generalization is not really
needed and is hardly accurate.

office=e-commerce sounds good. I'll start putting those on the nodes and
see where it get us.
