I think this approach (turning x=tag into tag=yes) is problematic, due
to the sheer number of tags it makes possible. Pretty soon there will
be a semantic clash between an existing key, and an existing value. I
don't know, a power company will go from office=power to power=yes or
something, clashing with the existing power=* tags. Are you sure it
wouldn't be better to push for "amenity=cafe;bakery;atm" style
multi-tagging instead?
