I've never been very happy with a lot of the craft= tags.

To me "craft" suggests small-scale, probably handmade, so things like
=basket_maker; beekeeper; blacksmith; cooper; embroiderer & so on all fit
as they're (usually) small, often one person operations.

But =boatbuilder; builder; electrician; glaziery; hvac; mint; roofer;
sawmill etc are usually not small scale works.

Should we possibly have a trade= key to cover the office / workshop / shed
/ factory unit where these specialists are located, or from where they work
out of?
