[Tagging] Defining genre for public bookcases

Hello,

Many public bookcases are small enough (20-30 books) that hey can have an implicit genre, for example most books are science-fiction novels, cookbooks, etc.

If you are looking for a particular genre, this information can be particularly helpful on a public bookcase map (so you know which public bookcase to visit).

There does not seem to have a generic "genre" tag in OSM. Should it be mapped like proposed in amenity=theathre?

  theatre:genre=drama
  theatre:genre=opera
  ...

http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:amenity%3Dtheatre <http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:amenity=theatre>

This could give:

  literature:genre=science-fiction
  literature:genre=mystery
  literature:genre=cookbook
  literature:genre=comedy
  …

What do you think?

Guillaume
