This is an interesting point. I always found healthcare2.0 (1) better 
structured than healthcare (2)? Could you explain your point?

 From my view,

healthcare leads to use different kind of items, taking examples:

healtcare=clinic is a type of healthcare facility, and 
healthcare=dentist is for me, a type of speciality. Then 
healthcare:speciality, specifiies a speciality. I would have liked to 
have healthcare=office (or even doctors) or 
consulting_room+healthcare:speciality=dentist. I totally understand that 
we want to point out a dentist office (and not a speciality) but I feel 
like things are mixed.

Then in healthcare2.0 proposal, there were a debate to use sepacialty 
instead of speciality... (3)

So I liked the proposal of health_facility:type= from healthcare 2.0 
especially because it takes into account health centre and health post. 
(which I guess is possible to add to healthcare=*?)

Looking forward to read your views on that, it always questionned me.
