I see two reasons why it would make sense:

1. the word gallery alone seems to cause so much confusion because of
its ambiguity.
2. if we depreciate tourism=gallery and introduce
amenity=contemporary_art_gallery it would make it clear which tag is
old and should be carefully reevaluated or is a new one following the
new scheme.

ps: I don't like the tourism key for museum or gallery.
