I like Zeke's simplicity though. However url might be to technical and 
source for confusion again with URI 
Why don't we use a common word for url / website / webpage, like 
webaddress=* or internet_address=*.
Everything can fit there.

I see no added value using a prefix or suffix by the mapper.
The type of address it refers to is defined by the scheme in the URI or 

For data consumers or OSM API it is, to avoid being truncated (we still 
have a 255 limit on values 
So if webaddress=* or internet_address=* or even the existing webpage=* 
and website=* need suffixes/prefixes if you want to store more then one 
url or even long url's.  URL's don't have a 255 limit.
