How long can this discussion continue?

Several agree that waste=dump_station is ambiguous, and I think all the
other top level waste=* proposals are too. That tag must be subservient to
another top level tag to remove its inhereht ambiguity

I'm pushing for amenity=dump_station because it isn't ambiguous and is in
relatively common use.

Let's try approaching this a different way: what are some reasons for _not_
adopting this tag? I don't buy into the notion that there are too many
amenity tags. A dump_station is just as much an amenity as a toilet or a
parking place.
