Sub tags give *extra* data about an entity.
A pub that's closed down it's still recognisable as a pub. It's not a
park bench or a multi-storey car park. It's just closed. This should be

Similarly a canal that's derelict hasn't morphed into an airplane
runway. Use sub tags to describe its condition.
