But park is an object.
Unfortunately OSM mixes objects and functions in various ways that are 
not consistent.
Nothing I can do about that with this simple proposal. In fact if 
objects and functions were to be organised in some consistant way, there 
would be considerable disruption to OSM as it now is! This comes from a 
non existent structure to OSM and no documentation to even suggest such 
a structure.

OSM has not.

events = birthday parties, conferences, anniversaries ... not just 

events is a function, adding venue makes it an object.

Sorry but I think this leads nowhere....

I would like a 'function' type name ..not an object ... for this 
'property' of an object .. be it a park, building etc.

Looks like the voting is against this.
Some against as it would be too numerous.
Others suggest a more numerous coverage would be better.
... there is a conflict here! And that cannot be resolved either way .. :-P
