shop key is also better than retail because:
- it is much more widely understood and used by non-native speakers !
- it is two characters shorter ;)
similarly obscure words are natural=fell and natural=heath which hardly
any non-saxons grok - or landuse=allotments which could be simply
of course landuse=retail is not as bad as created_by= which should
obviously be "created with". thats just wrong. would any of the tool
authors dare to fix this?
i am also wondering if we are really mapping drainage basins anywhere?
landuse=basin or i may be confused by the link to the dictionary there.
also i noticed that keys and values insist on using underscore _ in
place of a space. any good reason for that?
just IMHO 2 shells, but i think simplicity and clarity of tagging
actually matters in our project. as does inertia but it seems to mostly
work against us...
