Do you have any examples where a specific temperature is measurable?
Do you imagine these tags getting used for buildings like motel rooms, huts
and caves: and if so what's the suggested tagging scheme for the typical
cases?


----------------------
Often found in *amenity=drinking_water* taps with* bottle=yes* is the
ability to heat the water anywhere from "ambient" to boiling.

How is that addressed by the proposal?
*temperature=adjustable*
Alone does not capture it, as the typical adjustable range won't include
boiling.  Perhaps:
*temperature:range=ambient-boiling*


----------------------
The wiki suggests testing, e.g. by "throwing water at the object" to
determine the temperature.  Should that have a survey_date:

*natural=rock*
*temperature=hot*
*temperature:**survey_date=20150101*
*temperature:**survey_date:comment=Threw water on the rocks here, and it
boiled away within seconds.*
*note=Geothermal area*
