Me too. restaurant, fast_food, pub, restaurant, ice_cream*, *beer 
garden, cafe and bar for example should be shop= not amenity .. for my 

shop=storage to me means a shop that sells bags, boxes .. stuff to store 
things in ... not the space to store stuff in.

so shop=vehicle_storage would be better if it is to be shop=.

Though amenities don't have to be free e.g. bbq .. some are free, some 
have a fee.
