Here I would also opt to leave adit with the meaning it has for years 
now. The more as the english wikipedia seems to support this definition 
(cannot judge whether this is correct). There's just no need to redefine 
well established tags without need. And I would see only the opening 
gate (Portal, Stolleneingang) as the entrance, not the passage (Stollen) 
itself that leads to the digging zone ("Abbauort") which might be 
extended but which also might be the dead end. The passage might be 
quite long and I see no reason to call it an entrance.
