Sounds fine to me. My understanding is that tourism=bed_and_breakfast
has been used here and there, but then a mild consensus emerged just
to use tourism=guest_house, and the wiki reflects that (i.e. it
doesn't "suggest" tourism=bed_and_breakfast but there are some small
mentions of it remaining). Sub-tags might turn out to be useful, don't
seem harmful...
