Hi Sören

Multiple tags are only needed if each of them describes a different
property, which is not the case for changing_table:location. I don't
see a problem with adding two or more values separated by a semicolon
in this case. In the contrary: a value list is clearer and it seems
that it can be used more easily by data users (see this discussion [1]
and its continuation [2]). The wiki page on Semi-colon value separator
[3], which you referred to, seems to be overly strict when it says
that "avoid ';' separated values whenever possible".
