Here in Thailand the places I've seen and tagged are more like meeting
places for people. The good wifi, handy electrical outlets, desks and
refreshments make them an ideal place to meet, browse the Internet, or work
but they are not IMO primarily used for work.

That is why I would favor using amenity as a top level tag.
