    <p>Inconsistent tagging is inconsistent tagging, don't think that is
      really relevant for this discussion, inconsistent tagging schemes
      however are on topic. <br>
    </p>
    <p>I'm not convinced that we really want to model such a level of
      detail in the first place, but using a small set of common keys
      for facilities with similar purpose has obvious advantages over a
      multitude of special purpose keys that are difficult to discover.</p>

        <div class="gmail_quote">what makes you believe there will be
          less hodgepodge when we shift more information into the
          values? Look at your own example, there's a standardization
          issue with plural (cars) vs. singular (motorcycle, bicycle).
          Freeform tagging always will bring us also a lot of variants.<br>

          the only thing that will help us maintain a minimum of

          <div>I am not a CS person, and if the pros agree that overall,
            value lists are better than distinct properties, I will
            happily accept this, but currently I see issues with both.
            Inconsistent tagging can occur just as well in value lists.<br>
