[Tagging] Multiple values for one key - the cuisine problem.

Surely this is a solved problem?  Separate multiple values with a semicolon.

And there is no need for a language code for this type of key.  The values
in the key should be translated by whatever application is using it before
presenting it to the user.  That's why cuisine=french is correct because
the application should change it to "French" before displaying it to an
English-speaking end user.

Best wishes,
