In OSM, large map boards can be mapped as `tourist=information,information=map`. OSM is 
pretty good quality, so now some of these maps are based on OSM data.

Is there anyway to record this in OSM?

IMO, you don't need a reason to map something, but one benefit is to help people promote OSM. If someone thinks you have a weird hobby with this map thing, and you bring them to big map showing our map, then that's pretty cool. 

The `map_type` and `map_size` tags are used on these sort of maps. Do yous think `map_source=openstreetmap` is a good tag?
The long standing OSM convention of semicolons can be used if there's more than one source.
