I would not see a problem in the animal key being used in zoos and for livestock, as this could still be seen as consistent use. Animal=wellness or cemetery on the other hand follow a different concept (IMHO schemes like this are not favorable, similar to camp_site=toilets etc, because I would prefer schemes where A=B means that B is a kind of A rather than A a context)
