I have never considered the 'religion' tag as an access tag. Typically I can freely enter a PoW, and 
listen to the ceremony, without being a member of that community or believe in that religion.

Similarly, educational institutions in my scope mostly accept children with different background, in 
particular if the receive state funding. E.g. Ireland, the majority of the schools is operated by 
the catholic church, and as a recipient of public funding they have to accept everybody, equally.

Back to Konrad's question, any better ideas to tag the name of the operator's umbrella organisation?
