[Tagging] tag proposal for soft play centres

I agree we should move away from the trademarked title 'soft_play'. Perhaps if we keep the proposal and change the name of the tag to indoor_play, to include other types as well, as per brad's suggestion. We should also include sub tag qualifiers to specify if it's soft play and for what ages it's designed. I think it would be most appropriate to use indoor play considering its catch all nature and the fact that it is already used by a couple of websites. 

I will update the proposal and fill in the definition area, I must have just missed it. However, I won't update it till tomorrow because I only have my phone until then. 

Thanks, 
Dom
