Can anybody explain the difference, because there seems to be a lot of 

I often found "fireplace=yes. See also fire pit: leisure=firepit" in the 
Wiki. Why use different words to say the same thing?

I guess it was gain due to someome from Germany writing those Wiki 
pages... after looking a bit into it this is my understanding:

A fireplace is an architectural structure designed to contain a fire. 
Fireplaces are used at the present time mostly for the relaxing ambiance 
they create.
(Usually not used for BBQ?)

Fire Pit:
(Spelling already seems wrong)
Outdoor, open to all sides
Used for BBQ??? (Like is this a fire pit? 

BBQ Grill:

Is there anything I'm missing? Maybe a template would be good for the 
Wiki to avoid confusiong in the future.
