Hi all,

just realized there's a "great" new feature in ID editor,
lots of senseless service tags in this format :

Seems to be over a year ago that someone decided to avoid conflicts
between the "street" and the "car" services :

They just forgot to check whether it had some influences on existing
tagging schemes
and didn't even adjust the "shop=car" wiki page (whose tagging scheme
apparently lead to this decision).

This leads to entries like this one :

Thoughts ?
Ideas how to fix that ?
At least this opulent tagging scheme should be deactivated ASAP in ID.
