What François forgot to mention is that the current wiki page of
"operator" ([1]) is questionable.

It says:
"The operator tag is used to name a company, corporation, person or
any other entity who is in charge of the operation of a certain map
object. "

but :

"Useful to describe that a certain map object "belongs" to a company
or corporation in any way."

This definition suggests that "operator" is also the owner...
