[Tagging] Feature Proposal - RFC - Free drinking water by private entities

I’d suggest keeping it simple by using existing tags when possible.

If a cafe or shop gives out free water for customers, tag the shop or cafe
with “drinking_water=customers”. If it’s for anyone, “drinking_water=yes”
is currently used. I don’t see a need for a new tag “drinking_water=ask”

If there is a drinking fountain, water tap or bottle refill station in a
shopping mall or building that has opening_hours, just use
amenity=drinking_water plus opening_hours=* on the node. Man_made=water_tap
or =drinking_fountain or =water_well can also be added to the same node for
more detail.

I believe amenity=drinking_water implies no fee, and public access, so
these characteristics do not require explicit tagging
