Comparing aeroway=navigationaid and airmark=beacon

It came to light that there are two parallel tagging schemes for aircraft navigation infrastructure, aeroway=navigationaid and airmark=beacon (Note: linking to the German wikipage as there is not much documentation on the English airmark=beacon page). The table below compares them. In addition, some features with each tag are cross-tagged with man_made=beacon, and there are even some beacon=airmark tags too. :S
