I don't necessarily want to include everything but I think it's fair to
assume a general point of view.

Karting is a sport practiced in rather typical places and it is clear
that if I combine sport=karting even to a not ideal tag like
leisure=sports_centre the mapped feature is a racetrack for go-karts.
But sport = * is a tag subject to unrecognized and multiple values and
it is not always useful to understand what a feature is, if a typical
sports centre where you play tennis or soccer or rather for example a
track for Folkrace, sometimes tagged with sport=folkrace.
