[Tagging] Sub tags for sport=soccer

Hi. I see it a little complicated the labeling as soccer = 11_a_side (default)/9_a_side/5_a_side/mini_soccer/*. I mean, it's not so common sense. Maybe as soccer = 11/9/5/mini_soccer/ * would be enough.

It is currently the tag sport=futsal, which is for 5-a-side soccer, and usually on a closed and covered court, with hard ground.

In my country, Argentina, this variant is NOT known as futsal, but as "Soccer 5" (translation of "Fútbol 5" to English).

The problem I find is that the futsal tag is usually not used so much, but they do use soccer, which is not the same thing. So I like the variant soccer=*

9 a side ... so 18 players in total.

5 a side so 10 people total.

A version for the 'younger people' (children) usually called 'mini soccer".


I think these would be best tagged with the added sub tag of

soccer= 11_a_side(default)/9_a_side/5_a_side/mini_soccer/*

Where * can be used to describe whatever version that may come later or
be in existence now.
