This is not how hotels\motels or playground\childenarea works. Hotels are
hotels, regardless of your position.

The only part that relies on geo functions in my definition is "get
opening_hours=* value from parent shop=* or building for children_area=* if
opening_hours=* was missing for that children_area=*". This part is
advanced and optional and only for developers of geocoders, you can use
opening_hours=* directly with children_area=*.

a tag "kids_area".
Sure thing, we are just not aware of this! Dictionaries do not provide
numbers about slang vs normal meaning, it's hard to judge if something will
be meaningful based on full definition.
