I have to agree with this. The most common clashes I run into mapping towns
in Australia;

bakery/cafes (technically you could do amenity=cafe, shop=bakery)
general store/cafe
general store/fuel
general store/post office
pub/hotel (I tend to create two nodes, in roughly the right places)
pub/restaurant (in the country, I take the restaurant as assumed - every
pub serves meals at least some days of the week)

A general solution that would solve these and other problems would be a
relation to group parts of the same business. That way, you could have the
expressiveness of precise tagging (eg, "is there a bakery near here? yes.
is there a cafe near here? yes") but easy rendering: show one icon, and the
renderer can decide whether it's a cafe or bakery icon.
