Thanks for picking up on this. I used the tag a while ago to tag a coal
conveyor here in Thailand. Of course it doesn't render on OSM and I'll need
to come up with a way to render it for my GPS at some point. Seeing as
there are so many existing man_made=good_conveyor tags I agree with your
thinking on that item. The resource=* tag is for specifying the material or
"goods" that are being transported.That seems fine to me.
