No, sorry, I don't think that works either ! Looking at a typical
commercial book that describes camp sites, you expect to see a list,
maybe a long one, things like toilets, water, showers, laundary, BBQ,
fire place and so one. Many of these are already in amenity=*. But its
silly to do on one node or area -

name=Happy Campers Rest

So, I'd need to map each as an individual node. A search of the data
will not necessarily associate the BBQ with Happy Campers Rest Caravan
Park. Thats just as silly.

Someone making a map wants to see one object with these attributes so
they can decide what to render and how to render it.

name=Happy Camper Rest

Ugly but works in terms of associating the data in a meaningful way.

I think we still need categories in some form so that renders have a
hint of what they should do.
