What would be the benefit? If I'm looking for a language school I am not
interested in finding also dancing schools or driving schools or diving
schools, or chess training or basketball training. They also do have almost
nothing in common. We don't follow this approach for most other tags
neither (e.g. highway=road, road=primary or amenity=shop, shop=grocery).
This subtagging idea comes up from time to time, but there is really not
much benefit IMHO if the objects are completely different. Subtags should
be used to distinguish similar features, e.g. for which language they offer
courses, but "training" is really too generic to give any reasonable
results if standing alone.
