Sorry. No personal dispute/attack here. Just trying to get the detail
and some small understanding. OK?

I would map each sport as individual pitches/tracks (running is a track
type thing). Then add the relevant sport to the individual pitch/track.
That way I can 'see' where each sport is.

As individuals .. it is not upto 'us' to dictate what is used. :-)
The present 'system' in the sports key is duck tagging.
For example ... football could have been tagged
But it is duct tagged
sport=rugby_union ... not even sport=rugby, rugby=rugby_union !
Is one method better than the other? I don't think there is a clear
winner there, more personal opinion.
My present thinking is to put up both systems .. and see what mappers
prefer ... much like the swimming_pool thing where both amenity and
leisure used it for some time to see what the mappers used most.
To get back to part of my original question ... shot_put looks to be
preferred over shotput.
