I know this has been discussed before, but as the issue persists, I'm
mentioning it again: why "seamark:*"? Are there any plans to transition
from "seamark:*" to different tag names that are more descriptive, for
things that aren't "seamarks"? If I read a tag "seamark:type" I would
expect this to describe a seamark, not a nautical channel.
