[Tagging] Pets allowed

while I can't see a problem with a tag for each pet, it may still make 
more sense to have a pets tag and just namespace species/related things 
under it similar to the access tag. use cases I can think of:

  * pets=no | no matter what, no pets
  * pets=yes | open to all or at least most pets other than specified
    examples such as...
  * pets:dogs=no | dogs that are pets are not allowed, a guide dog does
    not necessarily count as a pet or at least, I don't think of one as
    being a pet.
  * pets:cats=1 | only one cat allowed

this does still make it vague in the sense that if only one cat is 
allowed, is it per party or per person, but this probably could be made 
more specific with another tag namespaced under pets (my mind is blank, 
I haven't eaten yet. however this feels like the best approach to cover 
most situations). this may also be useful for things like 
water-bowls/treats for pets as mentioned elsewhere here; for example: my 
bank offers dog biscuits for dogs, the train station used to offer a 
water-bowl as well, but I haven't put much thought into seeing if it's 
there after the take over by LNER.
