Then the wiki is unclear and misleading.  And it looks like somebody has
taken an
alread-misleading page, decided it was a synonym of amenity=ice_cream and
made it even more misleading.

"Take home" and "take away" share an important property: "not for
consumption on
the premises."  Whether you take the stuff home or take it off the premises
consume it nearby, you are not consuming it on the premises.

Try a related situation: a chip shop near me.  Some chip shops are takeaway
only.  This one happens to have seats and tables, so it gets tagged as a
cafe with take_away=yes.  Some people who buy fish and chips to take away
go across the road, sit on one of the two benches there, and eat them.
take their fish and chips all the way home.  Taking the fish and chips home
is one of the subsets of things you can do if you take the fish and chips

The different tag is for a shop (usually a kiosk) selling only ice cream
and which has
no facilities for consumption on the premises.
