Tagging for today's rendering is hazardous.

The stacked amenity model is quite common.  Nothing seems broken about it
at all.
For example:
There are thousands like that.

Sometimes the amenity you want to map can't even be assigned a proper
geometry (for example internet_access=wifi).

Creating fake geometry in order to get nodes to render would push things in
a really bad direction.  Next we'd be talking about
how many meters apart to space fake nodes so they render properly.

I think the proper tagging proposal here is: no tagging proposal at all.
It's all working just fine.

Then speak to the OsmAnd developers abound rendering known amenities
highway shield style:

Don't tag for OsmAnd.  Tag for tagability.  Tag for ease of understanding
by non-English speakers.  Tag for data preservation.  But don't tag for a
particular rendering.
