We should really separate things used to prepare foods and things used to make pottery, regardless of one type oven named a kiln.

I don't think trying to replicate the nuance of the dictionary is going to be helpful in this case because it confuses two tags that should not be confused. 

Compare the google results for pottery kiln vs kilns for food. Will it reach 1/2 of a percent of pottery/glass/ceramic/metal?) kilns? 

Unless you want to make  subkey oven=breadkiln or something, foodkilns should point back to oven.
