Well, to be honnest, I don't see the point.

We could scroll the activities' list of any Yellow Pages company and get hundreds of activities. All of them would deserve to be in OSM...
But how many are useful? Only the ones related to health, food, sport, culture, education...

As nobody will ever buy a paper directly from the publisher, the indication is of limited intererest. So let's populate the Kiosks tags in OSM instead of Publishers.

Sorry for my fist post. This is my first proposal and I am very new to this.

I am proposing the tag:publisher.

Intent: To mark the location of a publisher. Could be a magazine,
newspaper, music, software, book, etc...

The wiki page of the proposal is at:

I will really appreciate your comments.
