Err No.

A 'dish' is a reflector to the antenna .. the antenna might be a dipole, 
a horn etc.
While it is common to call an antenna a dish, tagging it as 
'antenna=dish' means you cannot add 'antenna=dipole'.

Rather than antenna=dish it would be better to have dish=yes.
However this may complicate adding it to man_made=telescope, 
telescope:type=radio as dish=yes does not mention antenna?

Yes.. that is the intention of the proposal - it is a sub tag to 
something else (that is an antenna).
It does presently say it is a 'property key' and that should imply that 
it describes another key?
