I've reread what you wrote. The added table is to do with adding other 
nodes/areas so you can see where these thing are within the camp site 
(or elsewhere). 'Your' tags are characteristics of the campsite and 
should go in the first table? At least that would be my interpretation 
of "camp_site:electricity=yes/no" .. So there should be no conflict that 
way. The second table things should be rendered as per usual, really a 
way of encouraging there use and reducing the search time for them. I 
don't know how yours would be rendered. Maybe things could go in a 
possible third table? Don't know .. see how it looks after a day?If the 
things in the second table are used .. then why added extras at all? 
Might be best to leave them out? Depends on people adding the second 
table tags, but that is true also for 'your' tags....
