Dear Richard,

thanks for your initiative. I agree with your arguments why a specific tag "natural=hot_spring" is better than "natural=spring" and "temp=*". It is something different.

Not sure about the word "consistence" which looks strange to me (but I'm not native). And also not very sure about the values: E.g. "mineral" - every spring contains minerals, the interesting point is which and how much. "sulfuric" - just a special case of "mineral" - why pick this one and not the others 

Just asking, not being specialist for hot_springs so cannot bring a solution. But would like to have them als on OSM, so I can go and jump in if I happen to drive by, it is so relaxing!!!

cheers, nounours77
