About 4% of all tagged shops have shop=yes as its primary tag what is
not properly providing information about shop type.

It would nice to reduce it a bit (at least stop growing share of shop=* tags).


how to find it?

JOSM validator since latest released version complains about shop=yes -
just download data and run validator

Osmose has support for displaying JOSM validator complaints

shows JOSM deprecation warnings

http://overpass-turbo.eu/s/H0S <http://overpass-turbo.eu/s/H0S> - you can navigate to your area and press run

iD - proposal to add complaint is at https://github.com/openstreetmap/iD/issues/5955 <https://github.com/openstreetmap/iD/issues/5955>


PS: Yes, some of shop=yes are on amenity=fuel but it is minority and even for fuel
stations tagging shops as a separate object would be preferable.

PPS: There is a proposal to stop rendering shop=yes in a default map style:
