Seems like a good idea, but following what Nick said...
You may not *need* to do anything, but if no one knows, then it is a bit
of a pointless exercise (except for specialist tags that are only of
interest to the originator). If no one knows, they'll never get shown on
a map and no one else will know to follow the same convention.
Just as Ulf could go his own way with waterway=slipway, there's not much
point unless those managing the rendering and other tools both know to
take note and actually do.
Incidentally, a cave open to the public might also be classified as
tourism=attraction in some circumstances (e.g. Speedwell Cavern and
similar in Derbyshire)
