The correct tagging would certainly be  "amenity" with several values,
separated by semicolons.
That's allowed by the osm data structure. We (try to) avoid it because of
the inherent problems with the subsequent rendering.
Maybe we could do it in the way the ingredients are listed on food stuff: a
list in decreasing order of importance.  A simple renderer would simply use
the first value of the list, but specialised ones are free to use also the
remaining values of the key.
