[Tagging] Feature Proposal - RFC - Water tap

What about introducing a name space:
water_source:potable=designated | mineral | heilwasser (I failed to find a
good English-language analogue, could someone help please?)
water_source:sparkling=yes | no | unknown
water_source:nonpotable=compromised | designated

In principle, details regarding the kind of water source could be provided
here as well, to free up the top level a bit and help data users:

water_source:type = tap | fountain | well | spring

Please comment.

Cheers,
Kotya
