One thing that I would like to see discussed is ordering. For example in
the semicolon word, is "shop=a;b" the same as "shop=b;a" or does the
former mean that it is an "a" with attached "b" and the latter mean that
it is a "b" with an attached "a"?

If a;b is identical to b;a then having both is of course a major pain
and would shift a lot of preprocessing work on tools like taginfo.

On semicolons, also see

Frederik
