that doesn't mean that evevery tag about railway should have
a namespace with railway
for ex railway=rail doesn't use a namespace
and so proposing railway:object=rail would be for example useless.
the same with usage. no need for railway:usage=main, usage=main
is fine

the other issue is that preserved is a value, for a key
that may have several other value (if a rail isn't preserved=yes,
what's it is ? usage=main/.... ? is os usage=preserved is
better than preserved=yes main=yes value3=yes value4=yes
