... that was pretty much my thought process with shop=office_supplies too.

I'd be happy to reconsider, but it'd be nice to still have a way of 
telling the two apart by some form of sub-tag.

OSM's big strength is people on the ground able to classify things that 
don't fit neatly into categories, and which may not make any sense to 
someone looking at the data from elsewhere.
