Okay, I guess customers may be getting a bit closer, although we would
still need to convey somehow that not everyone can be a customer (for
example no tourists) and that I can't just show up in person to volunteer
to be a customer as wit ha cafe - I need to do my "homework" of registering
at home or at another hotspot.

Be advised that I wrote many parts of that wiki page, including that
phrase. It was not part of the original proposal - I've merely documented
what I found on TagInfo at the given time instance (it occurs 4 times at
the moment that is below noise level), or at least some of the better and
more consistent ideas. I'd be open to suggestions for improving any part if
you see it benefits the community.

I'd like to point out that the word "charge" around here is mostly used in
the meaning of replenishing electric charge into the battery of a device.
It is so widely used in this sense that even many of those understand it
who don't speak English! In this context, I think it could be confused with
amenity=device_charging_station, although I acknowledge that a mapper needs
a certain amount of ingenuity to mix this up.
