As you ask for a "most" correct option, and as you write it is a dispenser,
"vending" doesn't seem the right term for this (nor does "machine").
Although it is documented, payment:none doesn't make sense any way in
combination with "vending".

This aside, I'd use 2 nodes (objects) and not combine several things into
one object, even if it is all attached to one pole.
You might consider using the node relation:
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Relations/Proposed/Node but to be
honest, I don't think it is evaluated by someone at this time.
