is this for belt conveyors and roller conveyors? There are also pneumatic
conveyors (with tubes, e.g. postal pneumatic tubes) and there are chain
conveyors. Not sure if a general "goods conveyor" tag is the right approach
to this (semantically), or if we better distinguish already on the primary
tag, the name "goods conveyor" implies a more general usage than what
actually seems within the scope of this proposal.
