To some extent. It's possible to conceive of situations where it
wouldn't. Maybe not for
check_in itself but some of the other tags where people said namespacing
What if the airport checkin handles both the hotel and the flights? What
if the place is a nexus
of airport and seaport sharing a common checkin? Semicolons can be used
but they are
thought by some to be problematic in the way some data consumers handle
Also the user interface would be more error-prone. In iD with namespacing
you'd type "check in"
into the search box and be shown a list of large(ish) icons labelled
"airport checkin", "hospital
checkin" etc. But with a list of values for a checkin=* tag you get just
text and it's a lot easier to
click on the wrong one by mistake.
But yes, it's an alternative to namespacing. And preferable to having
check_in=yes for all types
