That's a great page, I was just thinking of creating something like this.

I agree solving the tail values is useful too. I started yesterday already
with adding OSM Notes for all elements in the tail of Asda, Tesco and Aldi.

In the case of bookmakers, I think it's good to have the bookmaker/betting
controversy out of the way before looking at the tail.

I heard from many mappers that they are confused by the different tagging
options for shops, so having a page with all shop types of chain stores
hopefully also enables more mappers to start mapping shops.
