How is it unwieldy ? Your scheme uses exactly as many keys as mine for
a given usecase. The only difference is that I put everything under a
single namespace, which makes it tidyer and more discoverable.

Also, being and an evolution of the existing rather than a brand new
tag, and having a general value, consumers that aren't up to date with
the latest tagging trend will still get a somewhat usable value.

Lastly, I'm not a fan of the term "vaporising" : it's rather new and
not yet well established. It has other meanings that have nothing to
do with nicotine. It's confusing. There was a discussion about the
value for shop= not too long ago, and "e-cigarette" eventually came
slightly on top (now reflected in taginfo). I think it's much clearer
than "vape" and derivatives,
