Sure, there's loads of pages on the wiki describing how to map
particular types of things - they are called "Feature" pages. These
naturally refer to lots of specific tag pages.

See for example
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Bicycle
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Hiking

etc. Someone has even made a category for them:

http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Category:Features

and a page that also lists them

http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Features

and if you click through a few of them, you'll realise that most are
incomplete. Such is the nature of the wiki.

Cheers,
Andy
