> The main choice for water tap is between man_made = water_tap or amenity
= water_tap. I have no firm idea on either choice. If I have too now I'd
chose man_made=water_tap. Fits with man_made=water_well .. though not with
amenity=shower and I'm certain tehre are other examples.

+1 to man_made namespace, no need to deprecate amenity=drinking_water (80K+
uses, a lot of data consumers)

be confused with some other meaning. And be secondary to the facility ..
much as 'surface=paved' is to other tags (eg highway).

> water_purity=non-portable

not sure if "purity" is a good choice. Completely "pure" water is not
potable (distilled water), you'd die if you drank too much (OK, you'll also
die when drinking too much "normal" water [1], but the second "too much" is
much more than the first).
