for nursing homes it doesn't (yet) seem to be a success story, there are
only (or at least there are) 12 social_facility=nursing_home but 11899


I am not against the idea to use social facility tagging for nursing homes,
I just think it should be its own value in "social_facility" and not
mistagged as group home.
