pool & sport=swimming is another detail that needs a bit attention, I would
certainly vote to attach sport=swimming only to pools usable for sport

Current state is:
- only 5% of swimming pools are tagged with sport=swimming - however 42% 
  of sport=swimming tags are attached to leisure=swimming_pool and further 
  (partly overlapping) 37% to amenity=swimming_pool.

- other language wikis are partially inconsistent in this question.
