I wouldn't be comfortable to tag a station for rickshaws as amenity=taxi.
And then it renders on the map with a car icon. Unless there are stations
with mixed vehicle types (in Madagascar they always have separate dedicated
stations), wouldn't it be preferable using a different value of amenity=*
or something else and leave amenity=taxi for "taxis"?
