Your going on a trip from some place you have never been to .. to 
another place you have never been too ... and it will take some weeks. 
You know that there are few people along the way.
At what points along the way will you be able to buy;

fuel for your vehicle with a RON over 90

I know people who have a preference for a particular brand of contact 
lens stuff ... and they travel to many unusual places around the world. 
Oh and Nutella. If you want to know where you can get those things .. 
you ask her. :)
I know of people whose trip plans include tyre replacements, servicing 
(oil and filters as a minimum) ... For these people sells would be usefull.

What mappers want to add to that basic detail I have no idea. There is 
no way to prevent them adding that detail no matter how strongly you or 
I object to it. A 'sells' key add a common starting point that covers 
shops of all kinds rather than preceding along the way of each shop type 
having its own individual scheme. Each scheme can add the detail that 
you object to...  each scheme will probably be different from the next 
shop scheme ... do you want that diversity or some commonality?

I would like to see a 'sells' scheme that shares the same scheme as 
'produce' and 'product' - make them at least similar and people will 
come to understand them with less trouble.
