Booth is a rubbish name for a tag. It is an obscure, American term. Many
things could be a booth, eg a shop, or a photo booth, or a ticket booth.
In UK English, it is a "telephone box". If you want to tag a telephone
box, why not a tag for man_made=telephone_box?
It actually tells you what it is. You can add extra tags for the
specific style or model if you care about that.
