Keep in mind that there is already the tags "man_made=works" + "products=*"
for industrial scale production. Like the example of a brewery that can be
tagged as craft=brewery (when small) or via man_made=works + product=beer
(when industrial).

To my understanding, at trade shop can't really be compared to a "craft"
guy, as the trade shop only sell bulk material (there is no production
there). :-)
