It certainly makes overpass turbo queries a lot simpler and more intuitive
if we can group all
education facilities under education rather than under amenity. Typing
"education=*" is shorter
than "amenity=school or amenity=university". And won't trip you up if you
forget that you also
needed to query for amenity=college, etc. We did it for healthcare, we can
do it for education.
In the short-term it means even more complex queries to find educational
both sets of tags will be in use. However, if we have a 1:1 correspondence
education=school) then a bulk edit is technically possible and maybe even
Otherwise let's get rid of amenity=* by tagging EVERYTHING as thing=*.
It's the logical next step
after using amenity any time we can't think of a better tag.
