I am going to be doing more reading up on the Spa tagging, but I do like 
what you have done.

Another question that came to mind when reading what you have done:  How do 
I denote the different services that a particular company owned building 

For example with a bank that provides private banking services as well as 
foreign exchange and maybe a few other things?  not all banks provide all 
those services, some only provide a small subset.

Or, in keeping with the spa example, a particular spa which provides a whole 
range of different services where another may only provide tanning and 

Anyone have any thoughts or possible implementations?
