I was pleasantly surprised to come across craft=key_cutter in the wiki, 
as it seems to bridge the gap between the shoe-repair key machine 
operator, who can copy a small selection of the most common keys, and a 
real locksmith shop, which sells and services many types of locks and 
safes and offers high-security key copying, lock repinning, 
installation, also often these days alarms and security systems.

Copying keys isn't a storied craft like, say brewing or blacksmithing... 
but it does require some skill. And something is, literally, being 
crafted. That it can happily coexist with shop=* is a serendipitous 
bonus of using the craft tag.

Btw, lately I'm starting to see self-service automatic key-copying 
vending machines in some shops. Do I dare call these robotic kiosks 
craftsmen? Maybe vending=key_cutter?
