[Tagging] Tagging for an event space / function hall?

I encourage you to propose a mechanical edit to consolidate all that mess,
once the tagging is clear.

I encourage you to encourage mappers to supply a website tag with any new
event hall, so one can go from
map to name to the details of booking.


Many if not most "event halls" are in fact something else ALSO, like a
church or a community centre or a bed and breakfast.  Thus the tag should
NOT be in an existing namespace like "amenity, shop or tourism or
building". Instead it's an attribute
of a place.

amenity=events_centre would be a poor choice.

Some clarity should be made on restaurants that rent out space for events:
that's something of a different product.  Mappable I supposed, but not
really the same thing.
