I would rather try to limit the "odd cases", and maybe even get rid of them
in the long term. There is no benefit from using inappropriate terms. If
manhole=* is generally considered to be about manholes, why would we want
to encourage more usage for non-manhole objects?

IMHO we should fix the definition in the wiki by making it more precise, as
there aren't so many yet.
