[Tagging] My "weirdly unnatural aversion to relations"

Please be aware OSM is geospatially aware. Your example should have a 
boundary from which any amenity within can be determined.

I've noticed an increase in the unnecessary use relations in the belief 
they're the only way to 'collect things together'. The 'site' type is 
just one example. It appears the public transport schema is a major 
contributor to this misuse.

Even the wiki for 'site' gives a fake example.
