Thanks for your comment. I'm relatively new to OSM, so I don't have
all the history, so I appreciate you and others jumping in.
I saw the discussion page when I started working on this. However, it
is from 2012, so I'm not clear if this represents current state or
not. People are still clearly adding contact:phone etc tags....
I can see contact:twitter/facebook/etc is way more popular than
twitter/facebook alone. So if we use the non contact:* type, then
these don't align with the majority. Or would you suggest
phone/fax/website don't use contact: where as twitter/facebook do use
I personally don't have a strong opinion on which way to go, other
than try to be consistent.
I tried the iD editor... and it seems to have support for contact:*,
but use "phone/fax/email/website" in the quick pick list.
