What is the "type" or "kind" of a memorial?
There are currently different ideas crammed together in the subkeys, some
referring to the physical appearance, others referring to the topic or
scope/reason.

E.g. the suggested/documented tags:
memorial:type/memorial=plaque
memorial:type/memorial=plate
memorial:type/memorial=statue
memorial=bust
memorial:type/memorial=stele
memorial=stone
memorial:type/memorial=obelisk

all refer to the physical aspect of the memorial.

The suggested tag:
memorial=war_memorial refers to the topic of the memorial

the suggested tags
memorial:type/memorial=stolperstein
memorial=blue_plaque
because they are very specific, refer to both, the physical aspect and the
topic/scope.

IMHO we should have distinct tags for these properties, because they occur
indepently/are different properties.

Cheers,
Martin
