[Tagging] shop=appliance vs. shop=electronics

And another one from the ragged edge of tagging.

iD has a preset for shop=appliance
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features/Appliance_Store , I
assume for shops that sell larger electrical goods washing machines,
dryers, fridges and so on (in German so called  "weisse Ware"). It seems
that historically this wasn't popular and it was suggested to use
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:shop%3Delectronics . The later
would seem to work reasonably well for the large consumer electronics
markets that sell essentially everything from DVDs, over drones, TVs,
computers and washing machines. But not for smaller shops that are
specialized on just such larger appliances.

Any thoughts?


PS: no, I don't think it is acceptable to have to enumerate and query
every possible kind of good a shop can sell to find out what its main
kind of business is.
