Not shooting the messenger ;) this is to the wider audience...
What makes an optician's a shop whereas a dentist is an amenity? NHS?
Opticians selling sunglasses?
Is a signpost an amenity or a highway feature? I'd go with highway
And embassies... I'm not sure amenity fits here either... perhaps a wider
goverment related key would be more suitable?
The rest seem 'right' to me ;)
