Seems about as good as anything else.  Not really leisure or amenity
because it's not for fun and it's
more of a requirement than a lifestyle choice ("I think I need to get my
boots cleansed one day this week," or
"Let's go for an afternoon of boot cleansing").

I used 'cleansing' rather than 'cleaning' to try and get away from the

There's only one location where boot beatification could take place.  But I
doubt the Pope would do it.
Perhaps you meant beautification. :)

Assuming you meant beautification, then I'd agree.  If you document it but
nobody uses it then all you've wasted is a
few words in the wiki.  If you don't document it then people WILL abuse
your cleansing tag because it's the best fit
they can find (If the boot fits, beatify it).
