I first came across the location key when it was used to indicate whether
the Trans-Alaska Pipeline was running underground or overground. At the
time I thought it was a bad choice of words but it is fairly well
established in the OSM schema by now (44K occurrences of over- or
underground). Other important and potentially useful values of location
are: overhead, indoors, outdoors, underwater.
The one goods_conveyor I tagged was moving coal, as I said, and at several
points it was running over a roadway on a bridge. I was unable to tag the
bridge in a way that caused it to show up on the OSM slippy map. Any
potential rendering solutions would need to take that into account somehow.
