It was me, see earlier messages in this thread including one  that started as I wanted to
confirm that my edits match reality.

Are you claiming that there is some consistent difference between
shop=ice_cream and amenity=ice_cream in real tagging by mappers?

Are you sure that mappers are consistently using this two tags in this ways?
Because I am not noticing this effect at all, but maybe it is a local anomaly.

But given that shop=ice_cream and amenity=ice_cream do not have
any clear difference based on tags I would be highly surprised that there
is any real difference in meaning.
