Proposal

A key to record the way a feature is lit.

Rationale

Energy issues, the issue of energy savings, how to illuminate economically are becoming increasingly crucial. Therefore it is not sufficient to indicate if a feature is lit, it is necessary to indicate the way it is lit. A lot of urban features are lit during night, highways, monuments, urban furnitures, advertisings ...

Tagging

lit:type=*

Recommended use

lit:type=reflexion: lit with reflectors, lit by projected light, like spots or neon.
lit:type=transmission: lit by transmission, lit from the inside, transilluminated.
lit:type=neon: lettering and light boxes, neons.
lit:type=screen: the feature is lit because it is a screen.
lit:type=*:

lit:type=* can be used on nodes, or areas.

Applies to

Nodes and areas.

Features/pages affected

This tag adds useful information, but it is not in any way critical. I see it as complementary to lit=*.
