You mean a one step? Like highway= x ?

To do that I'd think a new supper key   waste=   at the top level! And 
maybe that is what it needs! If there are enough different kinds then 
why not?

What does it take to justify a top level tag?

Yes.. well presently thinking about amenity=reception .. from 
campsite=reception .. lots more ';reception' other than campsites ... 
multi building offices and industrial complexes and motels .. may as 
well have one tag to cover them all.
