I just set out to edit the page per your suggestion with the thought I could just block copy the site/pitch specific stuff from https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features/Extend_camp_site#Tagging_of_individual_pitches to below your changes at https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:tourism%3Dcamp_site#Additional_Features and immediately ran into a conceptual (on my part) road block.

I think that some of the tags I would like to copy over might be conflict with yours. For example, "Power connection point. May be connected to a caravan" (may conflict with "camp_site:electric=yes/no").

Shall I go ahead and attempt a merge of concepts based on my prejudices? How would you like to approach this?
