[Tagging] emergency=no on hospitals is ambiguous

Hello list,

I don't know is anybody wrote about this before, but I have noticed that
the emergency tag changes meaning on hospitals and the result is weird:
emergency tag indicate whether an emergency vehicle has access to the
way/point, but on hospitals his value is about emergency rooms.
I cannot imagine an hospital that disallowed access to emergency vehicles,
but the editors by example forgot about this and indicate so...
To avoid any ambiguity a rename could clarify the situation:
emergency -> emergency_room
On every hospital and we can assume emergency=yes on them (it's hard to me
to imagine a place that is emergency=no btw).
What do you think?
