The whole point is finding good enough definition. shop=fashion seems to be doomed, because we have no idea how it's different from shop=clothes, but if we can show differences for shop=boutique, we can decide if it should be deprecated or just update wiki.

Definition needs to have core properties which allow to classify shop type, but may also contain hints (optional secondary properties). How would you describe it then?

For me too - I don't propose to deprecate it. It's easy to define and 
popular enough. It can be just extended with subtags like shoes:for=* 
and similar and this is all I propose.

I want to use the input from discussion to update this proposition 
eventually, but we're still talking, so no rush.

But definition is a universal tool - no matter what 
sex/gender/age/nationality/profession you are, it should be easy to say 
if it's a car shop or motorcycle shop for example, even if you're not 
interested in the subject.
