completly agree that all cameras should share a common tagging!
1) man_made does not make any sense for a camera - ifnot, we should also tag highways, restaurants and buildings as "man_made".
2) The two-level tagging seems exagerated in this case.

Yes, simple it's o.k., BUT it does not reflect the common tagging discussed above.
So, the synthesis of the two proposition:
camera=surveillance | webcam | trafficcam | ...
would be easy, respect common tagging for all kind of cameras, and not discurage somebody from tagging a webcam because of the connotation of "surveillance".
> For the need for the tag, given the number of websites listing webcams for snow conditions, I suspect that these mapped webcams would find a lot of use.
Yes, I think having a map showing all webcams for weather & snow-conditions with direct link to the picture would be a very nice application and really of added value. Personally, before going hiking/skiing, I'm often looking for a webcam showing the spot I'm interested, and everytime it's a nightmare to find the right camera!
So, we should promote the mapping of webcams with a clear tagging proposition!
