proposing a new (or actually amended) use of the sauna key to specify
which kind of sauna the leisure=sauna is. The proposal can be found in

The proposed values as of now are as follows:

– sauna=yes
  General purpose value
– sauna=hot
  A Finnish-style sauna with a temperature of over 60°C because of the
water thrown on the rocks of the stove. This kind of sauna is relatively
dry because of the high temperature.
– sauna=steam
  A Turkish-style steam sauna with a lower temperature and limited
visibility because of the steam generated.
– sauna=smoke
  A Finnish-style hot sauna in which the stove has no chimney but
instead the smoke fills the room when the sauna is prepared, and the
smoke is then ventilated out when the sauna is ready.
– sauna=dry
  A non-steam dry sauna in which water is not thrown on the stove.
– sauna=aroma
  A sauna that constantly has an aroma. A Finnish sauna with occasional
aroma liquid added to the water is tagged as sauna=hot.
– sauna=infrared
  A sauna-like construction that is used for infrared therapy.
