document both IS recommend both!

ULFL - who thinks that having already hundreds (literally!) of tags is a 
mess for someone who wants to use our data. Can't hear that argument 
"let the application developers decide what they want" any longer!

Oh, BTW, didn't I mention that this discussion was already on this list 
a while ago? That's the reason that amenity=doctors is already in map 
features and JOSM mappaint for quite a while ...

Regards, ULFL

... who don't want to be a data messy!
