+1, although this will probably not lead to a compatibile tagging scheme, because I'd expect many of the things in the amenity key .

don't like this tag, IMHO too generic, not well distinguishable from travel agencies, no clear meaning (ever heard someone saying: I'm going to the tourist shop? What would you think if you heard this? I would likely ask 'where?'). It isn't really a category (of what they sell) rather than a category for whom it is (i.e. it can be used to disqualify a shop as "mostly for tourists " (locals who know the situation won't go there), but not to qualify the kind of things they offer).
