It'd mostly be useful for adding new tags/features, as deciding
between amenity, tourism or leisure is difficult and confusing (as
evidenced by the numerous discussions on the wiki).

There would be no huge need to move existing tags in the database, as
it's simple for a renderer to allow a value within either key.
