[Tagging] shop=fashion

Hi all,

I'm in favor of a namespace solution,
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Namespace
e.g.

ski:clothes=yes
surfing:clothes=yes
motorcycle:clothes=yes
any_other_sport:clothes=yes

and so on.

This way you may also tag other shops (not just shop=clothes)
in a way which exactly describes their offers,
in this example possibly a shop=sports.

The same works also for other services they offer,
like
ski:repair=yes
ski:rental=yes
ski:parts=yes

This way there's no need to create a new shop type
or decide whether it's MORE one type of shop (bicycle vs. motorcycle vs.
car or similar)
in case they offer very various things.

Cheers,
Thilo
