shop=hobby is a terrible tag. Every activity is a hobby to somebody,
so shop=hobby gives no clue as to what the shop sells.

So why document that tag at all ?
* The wiki suggests that "hobby" relates to art and music, which I'm
willing to bet is not what every users of the tag had in mind.
* There's 204 occurences in taginfo, which is a fairly small threshold
for "in use".
* Even if the page starts with a "do not use" paragraph, it raises the
prominence of the tag, contributing to the tag's popularity instead of
reducing it.

So I suggest deleting that wiki page. And of course, surveying and
retagging all the "shop=hobby" you come across.
