+1 for the possibility to move things if it seems useful and as long as
it stays to a reasonable low amount of changes.
amenity=supermarket -> shop=supermarket seems like a perfectly valid case.

It would be nice if we kept a list of such changes. I could then run the
fixbot from time to time on the planet and we could auto-move "old" tagging.

I see Dave's point on why change for the sake of it is bad. But
consistency makes it easier as well, or we could start just using
numerical id's for the values right away, which would save lot's of disk
