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?
Alone does not capture it, as the typical adjustable range won't include

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

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