It's much more precise than shop=yes (which is used a lot) and I know
what food is, even if I don't know shop type details.

We also use building=yes and highway=road and we need them. They are
very useful to not cheat that a mapper knows more than she really does.
It's always better to have more precise data, but declining more general
categories is not a way to achieve this, it's just sweeping problem
under the rug.
