[Tagging] Feature Proposal - RFC - police=*

That's why the proposal state that we will keep the amenity=police tag on
the public-facing object so that they will still be backward compatible at
the moment. Thus, the "technical" problem doesn't exist, and if we drop the
amenity tag in the end, it will be probably after (at least) a year - if we
look at others tag changes in the past. Thus database users should have
plenty of time to adapt if needed ! ;-)
