Hi

Interesting thread about namespacing in tag names.
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Talk:Proposed_features/Pipeline_valves_proposal#Use_namespace_or_not
Spoiler: no consensus shows up at the end.

I still think that actuator=* is better than two pipeline:valve:actuator=*
and railway:switch:actuator=* because the first is really more concise and
reusable between valves and railway switches.
Like I don't like fire_hydrant:position instead of simpler location=*.

Can someone brings benefits from using namespaces in this particular
situation please?

Al the best
