I have no considered it before but it may make sense to use it at amenity=marketplace in

some situations so I made an edit:

 I am not convinced that spending time on defining values in such detail, but as I am not opposed to

that I will not explicitly define it as limited only to yes/no values.

If someone see value in additional values - feel free to propose something by editing 

https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features/street_vendor%3Dyes <https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features/street_vendor%3Dyes>

(though I am not promising that I will use it in the final version).
