I object. The feature page should document actual usage, and actual usage
differs from proposed usage. smoking=outside is the second most common value
and 15x more abundant than the proposed smoking:outside=yes. By the way, I
find the proposed tag smoking:outside=separated ridiculous because you
cannot separate air masses outside.

The proposed keys smokefree=* (65 objects) and smoking_hours=* (14 objects)
should also be removed from the feature page.
