I guess yes, as far as it comes with the main tag.

I have seen the place=* page on the wiki
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Places and it doesn't look at all like
an appropriate tag to use : it is for cities, suburbs and neighbourhood.
I agree that a meeting point is not about information so let's forget about
tourism=information + information=meeting_point

Therefore, even if a meeting point is not only about tourism but best
choice we now have is tourism=meeting_point isn't it?
With the optional tags it would be:
name=Meeting point A
operator=You name it

Good for you guys?
