I am fine with tagging more detailed info. But I would be equally fine with deleting any
outdated detailed info.

I think that this two would balance well.

It would be nice to be able to store that info - it would allow search for nearest shop
selling motorbike tyres that would be automatic and take less than second
rather than manual and take minutes (or hours if many close shop=tyres are not selling them)

At level where mappers are unwilling to maintain up to date information.
