Jason, yes. This is where the confusion is arising. I was suggesting we 
use type=cmb for the community mailbox you mention above.

However, James was wondering about the non community types, the ones I 
called "normal" mailboxes.

I'm proposing that by default the amenity=post_box will be the "normal" 
style unless specified with a type=cmb, where it will be the community 
mail box type.

Hope this clears things up.
