[Tagging] Feature Proposal - RFC - Big Bench

I would use tourism=viewpoint 
<https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:tourism%3Dviewpoint>) or 
tourism=attraction / tourism=artwork if it's not a view point. I 
understood that most of them are intended as viewpoints ?

For attribution combine with attraction=*, artwork_type=*, brand=*, 
operator=*, name=* etc.... A good value seems to me oversized_furniture, 
better then a term using bench which is very specific. There might also 
be big tables, big chairs, big cabinets etc... so I would prefer not to 
be too specific in value semantics.

If it's not a viewpoint but just intended as artwork it becomes 
tourism=artwork. Not considered as art but just a curiosity or platform 
design tourism=attraction. All these tourism tags can still be combined 
with any of the above attribution tags.

Key is that the mapper need to make a choice what the primary intention 
is, a viewpoint, an artwork or an attraction. If all use the same 
attributes it would be easy to retag (in case of disputes or different 
opinion) without loss of attribute data, by just changing the top level 
tourism tag. This scheme uses only existing and documented tags, just 
add some examples for specific attribute values and you are done.
