OK, but this is not the case with the Big Benches that are the object of
the proposal., with the exception of normal-size Small Big Benches
<https://bigbenchcommunityproject.org/small-big-bench/>, which are for sale
by the non-profit Big Bench project.

To be clear:
An amenity=bench is an object on which people can sit down. If they need to
climb a ladder, or if any acrobatics are needed to reach it, they are not
If I make a map of amenity=bench locations I want to see only benches on
which a normal-size adult can sit down without problems.
