I don't say that tourist, scout, refugee should be outside OSM. My
statement is that the group key (tourism, shop, highway, ...) is not
needed, as all information is in the value (hotel, supermarket, motorway,
...). Attribute tags that give more information about the main key
(opening_hours=...) remain needed.

Something like this is absolutely wrong, because it suggests that a refugee
camp is something touristic.:
