[OSM-talk] Street cabinets

Well, I'll update my definition of street_cabinet and thank you to notice
me those existing tags.

A street cabinet concerned by the proposal differs from a monitoring
station :
- "Monitoring station" is only functional without taking size in account.
You can't going into a cabinet, it's only a rack where equipments are
installed and can be accessed by opening the door.
- "Monitoring station" is dedicated to monitoring when a street cabinet can
by used for many other activities (monitoring_station is far more specific
than street_cabinet).

Knowing that, I won't replace monitoring_station by a specific type of
street cabinet.
Mappers would use monitoring_station or street_cabinet either depending of
what is being mapped.

Typically :
- Urban air quality monitoring box => man_made=monitoring_station +
monitoring:air_quality=yes
- Traffic signals common box => man_made=street_cabinet +
monitoring:traffic=yes (we don't know if the box is only monitoring or
doing control & command too).

Proposal examples have to show the difference but I miss evocative pictures
to illustrate it properly.

I'll update the document later, I hope my point is clear here.


Cheers.
