[Tagging] Tagging sockets

I'd like to separate the discussions about amenity=power_supply (my proposal) and the enhancement/merging of the socket: and power_supply key.

On topic: I think it is important that information can be added by looking at the device. This means that in my opinion socket:cee_blue= and socket:cee_red= should be valid tags. The amperes, if known, could be added with socket:[type]:current= like suggested in the wiki.

 For the "socket" key: I suggest putting the current rating onto the cee_blue sockets (cee_blue_16a, cee_blue_32a, etc) rather than limiting it to one rating; this will also make it consistent with the cee_red_* sockets.
Also, BS1363 (UK, Ireland, and quite a few other countries --- see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AC_power_plugs_and_sockets:_British_and_related_types#International_usage_of_Type_G) is missing.

 Thank you for your comments so far. I've now written a proposal. 
  The definition (wording can surely be improved): " A place where you can get electrical power."  
 This could be applied to an airport that provides USB charging ports at table/desk/chair .
  I've not taken into account your discussion about different socket types. This would be the topic for a different proposal about improving the power_supply= sub-tag. But this proposal is only about establishing the new main tag.  
 Unfortunately the connection will be a vital detail for most. e.g. Some items can be charged from a USB post others cannot. 
 I would think that there needs to be one tag for the connection 'detail'. It needs to be able to be applied to any tag where the connection detail is to be tagged. 
 At the moment there are 2 keys for this detail
 These should be combined into one universal sub key that could be applied to any feature. 
 I think most map users will be after a USB power port to charge their phone! So that should be a priority and something that should be mentioned on your proposal as it will then get a lot of attention. 
 I think you will find that the socket type is a vital detail and needs to be addressed. 
 Minor detail: The order of the 'usefull combination' can be better. Access, fee and socket type should be at the top.
