IIRC, there is opposition to "multi-tagging" - (I can't remember
exactly who said that or why, though...I suspect it's because you then
need to parse every single value string and turn it into a vector,
rather than being able to use a much faster equality condition)

But I do know that we currently do things like bicycle=designated +
foot=designated, instead of designated=bicycle;foot. So my suggestion
is more consistent with current practice.
