First of all, I don't care in which order a namespace/subkey/whatever
would appear, but I do see advantages and potential in using these. Just
a few random thoughts:
1) Bilangual place names have been mentioned:
2) Renderer specific hints:
3) Introducing multiple restrictions on one road:
3b) Same for junctions and other things:
3c) it could even be used to mark turn restrictions
This can be done without introducing an new columns and stuff, just by
using it as a convention. How it's done in the backend and what's it
called like should be of no concern to the end user...
