Such merging may cause problems for (some) editors.  If you can guarantee
that all
camp sites, hotels, motels, etc. can potentially have any of ticket booths,
vending, check in,
etc. then that's fine.  E.g., if A could have any of X, Y or Z; B could
have any of X,  Y or Z;
C can have any of X, Y or Z; etc. that isn't a problem.  The editor's code
just handles it as
a list of X, Y and Z can apply to A, B and C

What would be a problem is if A can only have X or Y; B can only have Y or
Z; and C can only have
X or Z.  That means special-casing bits of code.  Historically, authors of
(some) editors refuse
to support such tagging schemes because it introduces code complexity.

Of course, we can define tags any way we wish.  But unless editors support
them, they won't
get used as much as if the editors support them.
