[OSM-talk] Map_Features not loading

I'll second that. When I'm mapping, I can narrow it down to a couple 
categories if I'm not sure which tag(s) (or if there is one) is/are 
appropriate. Having a single place to search where only tags are 
returned is a great tool.

Might I suggest a wiki page called Map_Features_All and one called 
Map_Features_Basic or Map_Features_Essential ?

But this is just my way of working.  If the list of shops and sports were split off I'd get by, but I like it as it is.
