Yes. ... forgot to stipulate that.

Distractions form the major features that I'd use to separate them. .

The 'extra data' can be tagged separately? This give a clear boundary between the class system. And still enables the other things to be tagged.

Fee payment may cover credit cards,

shade by marking tree/s on the map,

disabled toilets as a sub tag to toilets

power is covered by a tag

pitches yet to be defined .. but a draft proposal exists,

internet .. has a tag, \

So quite a few things already covered by tags.

What I think is needed here is a simple system to separate the levels .. readily identified and easy to implement. The other things are, as I said, distractions.
