Please explain why this is simpler. I don't understand

Your change would require all editors and data consumers to be
updated. That all current mappers have to change their current
knowledge of how a bench, street lamp etc. are mapped.

If you have problems to remember what the main key is, you might
consider to create a JOSM preset called Street furniture. It can
contain all the items you mention with their current tagging. Then you
can simply type e.g. F3 "bench" and the correct tagging will be
applied. Is there anything simpler than that ?
