diplomatic=honorary_consulate ~450
consulate=* ~190 ..

Clearly the consulate key lacks use. And there is no wiki page for it... I see no point in making this key?
diplomatic=consulate was an older part of the now approved office=diplomatic .. as such it is not approved!
There are several iterations of the proposal. It is only the final version that has been approved.


Editorials.. to the wiki page https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:diplomatic

I have removed duplication of amenity=embassy from the 'usefull combination' but have left it in the 'requires' section.

Moved office=diplomatic to 'requires' section.

I think at the moment both of these tags are 'required' when using the key diplomatic=*, not just a 'useful combination'.

Reinstated to the 'usefull combination' ; sending and receiving countries. Both of these could be usefull with the key diplomatic=*.
